Private Equity and Transaction Support Services

Whether you are contemplating acquiring or selling a business, raising debt or equity or considering a merger, our Private Equity and Transaction Support Services Group will help you prepare for the transaction, maximize value and help ensure smooth post-transaction integration.

Today’s business environment has changed dramatically over the past decade. Private equity funds are now a primary source of succession planning and exit strategies. These firms have a focus on increasing portfolio company performance and the need for seamless transactions. At BlumShapiro, we are dialed in to these needs and challenges. Unlike traditional firms, the focus is on growth and maximizing returns, while keeping an exit strategy in mind.
