Doeren Mayhew, a CPA and business advisory firm with a full-service investment bank, has been named a “2013 All-Star Firm” by INSIDE Public Accounting, ranking first among mergers and acquisitions firms across the nation.

Based on submissions from more than 500 U.S. firms, the M&A advisor team at Doeren Mayhew was the leader in deals as a percentage of overall revenue.

Helping the firm garner this designation as one of the nation’s top investment banks is a team of M&A advisors who guide clients through the buy and sell processes while the firm’s accounting and due diligence professionals provide key M&A support.

“Having an investment bank within the practice has proven invaluable for our clients, as working with their business on the accounting side uniquely positions us to take them to market and maximize value when they are ready to exit,” said Tim Moore, an M&A advisor and managing shareholder in Doeren Mayhew’s Houston office. “It is a true testament to our team that these clients instill their confidence in us as they embark on one of the most important decisions of their lives.”

The firm’s investment bank is having a record year in M&A activity, partially fueled by the Houston energy economy, said Steven Silverman, an M&A advisor leading up the investment bank team in Houston.

“Clearly the energy sector remains hot, with two of the four deals we’ve closed in the past month representing clients in the energy space,” Silverman said. “We’re also seeing strategic buyers returning to the negotiating table as well as a nice uptick in interest from international buyers.”

Rounding out the firm’s record year in M&A is growth in its Troy, Mich., office. Recently adding Director of Investment Banking Brian Basil, the firm expects to continue gaining traction in this market as it helps Michigan businesses achieve their growth and exit goals through comprehensive investment banking services.
