About PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory Services LLC (PwC Advisory Services)

PwC's (PricewaterhouseCoopers) Advisory practice, PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory Services LLC ("PwC Advisory Services"), provides the right mix of industry and functional expertise to help its clients address their most interesting and complex business issues and opportunities from strategy through execution. Advisory's consulting services focus on strategy (Strategy&), management, technology and risk consulting, including operations, finance, organizational strategy and structure, process improvement, human resources effectiveness, customer impact, technology integration and implementation, big data and analytics, IT security, risk mitigation and crisis management. Advisory's forensics services include anti-corruption/fraud, forensic investigations, licensing management and cybersecurity, in addition to guidance on mergers and acquisitions through their deals capabilities. Advisory's deals services help our clients (the world's largest corporate and financial investment institutions, such as private equity firms) with their planning of acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures & alliances, capital raising and dealing with distress (e.g. bankruptcy). Finally, Advisory has many special function practice areas including digital services and analytics. 

The firm's offerings and expertise have expanded primarily by developing deep skills and top talent from within. That growth has been complemented by strategic acquisitions over the past several years, including Strategy&, Diamond Management and Technology Consultants, PRTM, Ant's Eye View and Ray Group International, among others. 

These acquisitions added deep experience in technology and management consulting to PwC's expanded breadth of services and capabilities. Most recently, on April 3, 2014 PwC announced the successful completion of its acquisition of Booz &Co, now going to market as Strategy&. This acquisition creates a firm with the ability to help clients address their most complex imperatives from strategy through execution, and that the firm claims is differentiated by its ability to help clients build their own capabilities on a global scale. 

The Advisory practice aligns its marketing strategies and messaging to business imperatives that represent the issues and opportunities of primary importance to its clients. Advisory enables conversations that bring together insights from across the firm and this integrated thinking helps drive the multi-competency, strategy-through-execution approach that sets PwC Advisory apart and strengthens their brand. PwC Advisory has been recognized by the analyst community and earned one or more ratings as a leader in every major category of our Advisory business, including Strategy, Management, Technology, Risk, Forensics and Deals, as well as in key investments areas such as Human Capital, Analytics and Digital. 

One global network, many members

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is the U.S. member firm of PwC, a global network of independent member firms. Today, the PwC network comprises more than 195,000 people in 157 countries and territories. This international group was created in 1998, with the merger of Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand, two accounting and professional services firms that date back to the mid-1800s. Both Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand began in London, and both grew their global presence organically and through mergers. 

PwC is headquartered in New York and boasts 83 offices across the United States. The firm serves 81 percent of the companies on the Fortune 500-28 percent as an auditor, and 56 percent in other capacities, including consulting. While each member firm operates independently within its own geographic locale, there is a considerable amount of cooperation and networking between them, ensuring that the global network of firms works as both a global entity and on a local scale. 

Given its sheer size and country coverage, not to mention the independent setup of its member firms, it should come as little surprise that the services PwC offers vary slightly within the global network of firms. However, all services do fall into one of three core PwC lines of service: tax, advisory and assurance.
