Transaction Advisory

The industry term is mergers and acquisitions, but our many clients who we have helped purchase, sell or merge their businesses will tell you it’s more a case of matchmaking. That’s because, while there may be many attractive options available, we work to find The One for each of our clients. 

Our experience in identifying appropriate opportunities, formulating strategic purchase, sale and merger plans, and advising during contract negotiations has enabled our clients to move forward with confidence. And they know that we’ll be there for them, through the honeymoon period and all the happily-ever-after years that follow.   

We’re ready to assist in the following areas:

  • Business valuation services
  • Buy/sell purchase price negotiations
  • Acquisition due diligence procedures and planning
  • Purchase price allocations 
  • Transaction tax minimization strategies
  • Buy/sell document consulting
  • Use of leverage and creation of optimum
  • Cost of capital structure
