For the second year in a row, top 10 U.S. public accounting and consulting firm Crowe Chizek and Company LLC has been named the top accounting advisory firm at the 2004 Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Advisor Awards.

Fifty-seven finalists in 17 categories were selected by the Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor nominations committee, composed of members of the publication's editorial board and select members of the journalistic community.
