Partnering Together for Mission Success

For life science entities like yourself, the mission is always critical. We help you achieve it with a nuanced understanding of the issues you face: legal and regulatory hurdles, diverse funding sources, long-term return-on-investment and time-to-market scenarios, large capital flows, and the need for transparency and high ethical standards. No matter your situation, we’ll uncover cost-effective solutions for your audit, tax, and financial analysis needs.

In addition to navigating you through compliance issues, our professionals also help identify appropriate grants that could help you obtain millions of dollars in additional funding. As one of the premier firms working with not-for-profit clients, we have extensive experience consulting with organizations applying for grants, meeting their compliance needs, and performing Single Audit checks on their use.

  • Obtain federal awards and contracts

  • Prepare indirect cost proposals for government and other contractors
  • Manage federal and state tax incentives and credits

“The Hutch chooses Clark Nuber for their deep expertise and commitment to not-for-profits. They have been our go-to firm for advisory services related to complex accounting, tax and federal compliance issues. They helped us streamline our financial statements and schedule of expenditures of federal awards, saving us a significant amount of prep time each year and making them more readable and useful to our donors and stakeholders. In terms of tax compliance, it gives me peace of mind knowing that Clark Nuber is known nationally for its not-for-profit practice.”
