The M&A experience is often adversarial but it doesn't need to be. It should be about bringing people together. Experience and incentives are critical and alignment is essential.
Whether you're buying a business or selling one, you are going to experience a short, intense, high stakes adventure. The transaction itself will be complex and the number of people involved will increase that complexity. You need support to oversee the entire project, determine shared outcomes, plan the process, make introductions and add critical, timely resource, to get to the desired destination.
Avoid the uncertainty that can come from not knowing who represents you and what their incentives are. Get the facts, from impartial professionals who have worked on hundreds of transactions, across the entire market.
Chose between traditional representation or a collaborative approach, based on your own unique requirements. If you've already found the perfect partner, then get the help you need to complete the deal and nothing else.
