What’s the biggest difference in M&A tax in big 4 compared to mid size firms? Is it just the size of the clients involved?

Typically more complex transactions and larger volume. If you’re going to pay for an M&A tax analysis might as well go big 4

Not in m&a, and mid-size can mean a lot of different things. In my experience at a mid-size (~300 US staff across 3 offices) and b4, the biggest differences beyond client size were b4 had more resources available, better tech and better talent pool

If you want to learn more and se emote complex deals than it’s definitely big 4. You won’t see as much in a mid size firm

How’s work/life at mid firms?
