Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Advisory Expertise 

Our Investment Banking group excels in both M&A strategy and execution, and has uniquely aligned our services to the needs of middle market and mid-cap companies.  Our team combines in-depth industry and market knowledge to customize creative ideas addressing our clients’ unique needs.  Our involvement can range from providing advice on strategic alternatives available to a company executing upon sell-side, buy-side, and structured capital transactions for clients; from early stage evaluation of strategic alternatives to in-depth execution of an M&A or financing related recapitalization. 

From a platform integrated with one of the country’s largest banks, our sophisticated capabilities are national in scope and enable us to deliver services seamlessly.  A flexible alternative to M&A-only providers, our business model revolves around building lasting relationships. 

Middle Market and Mid-Cap Specialization 

We serve all our clients based on deep insights of the middle market.

Our entire team has spent much of their careers serving the middle market, establishing proven M&A experience in sell-side advisory, buy-side advisory and recapitalizations.
