We are consistently successful in identifying firms in your area that are interested in some type of affiliation including a long or short term succession plan, outright sale, upstream merger, seeking to grow through a merger or acquisition, or a staged transition or mergers of firms with younger partners, and, or niches, who can strengthen your internal succession team and firm. We also identify firms not in your area who want to be! We are consultants who can provide transition strategies when you are ready to take the next step in growing your firm, interested in moving to the next level, or slowly taking more time off to enjoy life, or many other avenues of change to meet your life style and work style.
