A search process for firms that are ready to begin a process of seeking a merger or acquisition, or wishing to find a firm they can sell or merge their practice into.
Every opportunity is time sensitive and requires the proper timeframe to mature. There are five timeline stages a firm progresses through in the selling or merging.
We can help firms looking to find merger or acquisition candidates or help a merger or acquisition candidate find a firm to transition or sell their practice to.
What Size Firms Do We Assist?
We can help you seek a $100,000 practice or a multi-million dollar firm. There are different questions to ask and typically different needs in place for transitions of varying size, but the search process is identical.
Each firm goes through a lifecycle. At different stages they require solutions to address the phase the firm is in. At one point every firm is faced with transition issues. Partners need to exit their practice, which creates obstacles for one firm and opportunities for another. If executed properly, all parties can achieve a successful and fair transition out of or into a practice, while helping the surviving firm grow.
One achievable method of growing is to purchase or merge with another firm. This provides short-term opportunities to increase profits and grow niches, but in the long-term value it builds the equity and selling price of the surviving firm. We help you create an M&A strategy and our in-house executive callers become the first line of conversation with your potential merger or acquisition candidates.
