Growing an Existing Firm

We work with top independent firms looking to drive growth through mergers and acquisitions. Since most of M&As directly impact P&L, growth rates, and organizational structure, we focus on creating solutions that help ensure every revenue dollar is profitable and accretive to your firm’s value.

Compensation and firm equity are key structural challenges for many successful advisory firms. We help activate growth and/or rationalize compensation to meet your strategic objectives.

Developing an Exit Strategy

Most owners of independent advisory firms struggle to come to grips with structuring a defined exit for their life’s work. We help create a custom exit plan, including custom internal or external succession plans, for top independent firms.

We help ensure that your legacy and exit are structured on your terms while seeking to balance the needs of remaining stakeholders within the firm. We provide feasibility assessments for internal or external succession, structure of terms, a valuation, if necessary, and support in implementing the plan.
