Who We Are

Maxwell Locke & Ritter LLP is the largest locally owned accounting firm in the Greater Austin area. We’re known for offering exceptional work-life balance and for our dedication to our people, our clients, and our community. We’ve been named Accounting Today’s  “#1 Best Mid-sized Accounting Firm to Work For” in the US for three of the past five years, with a 2nd place ranking in 2020.

What You’ll Be Doing

As a transaction advisory intern, you will be a key member of buy-side and sell-side deal teams, utilizing your Microsoft Excel skills to compile and analyze target company financial data. You will participate in discussions with key executives and decision makers and help identify potential issues important to our clients’ investment decisions. You’ll be able to apply your education in a hands-on, fast-paced learning environment, collaborate with associates and partners, and connect with a dedicated mentor throughout your internship.

What Sets Us Apart

We’re redefining what it means to work in public accounting by:

  • Instilling the belief that “No success at work is worth failure at home,” while recognizing everyone’s version of “home” is unique to them
  • Leaning on our core values and showing genuine care and concern for one another
  • Empowering our people to do what’s best for them, while providing exceptional client service
  • Cultivating an environment that allows our people to thrive personally
  • Investing in the professional growth of our people

How You Can Grow

Unlike most transaction advisory internship experiences, you will participate in transactions from start to finish. You will have the opportunity to contribute in executive management meetings and have direct access to senior members of the deal team.

The learning curve is steep, but you will quickly improve your analytical and professional communication skills to position you for future career success.

As a firm that embraces people from different backgrounds, we encourage applications from diverse candidates. Maxwell Locke & Ritter is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels of our firm. To support this endeavor, our DEI committee focuses internal efforts on awareness, recruitment, and outreach.
