Why CLA?

You can depend on CLA for several uncommon advantages:

  • Deep industry insight
    Our people are industry practitioners first and foremost. You will work with professionals who know you, your organization, and your industry — and combine their knowledge with yours to make you stronger.
  • Seamless, integrated capabilities
    We offer planning and guidance from startup through succession, with particular care for you and your organization’s leaders. Our people connect with a vast network of resources behind the scenes — seamlessly presented and delivered for you.
  • Premier resource for private businesses and owners
    Entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy. We place you — personally — at the core of our strategic focus because enabling your success means a better world for all of us.
  • Professionals personally invested in your success
    You will work with entrepreneurial people with the freedom and agility to serve you rather than merely perform obligatory functions.
