Create opportunities with CLA
When transaction needs arise, having experienced advisors at your side is critical to a successful outcome. We have the merger and acquisition (M&A) advisory and investment banking experience to help business owners and boards of directors sell, and other leads sell or merge their for-profit and nonprofit organizations. Our M&A advisory professionals design and manage a customized process, creating competitive tension to optimize valuations and non-economic terms.
Our approach is unique: we bring a CLA team together that can seamlessly help you through the process in a way that we believe no other M&A advisor can. Our team comprises M&A professionals with a long track record of successfully closed transactions, CPAs, tax practitioners, and wealth advisors. These capabilities are complemented by our strong collective knowledge of your industry.
Post-transaction, our integrated wealth advisory capabilities can assist you with personal investments up to and through retirement. Understanding the strategic goals of the stakeholders is critical and our professionals work closely to provide guidance on options that will benefit our clients.
