Our credentials include Investment Banking, Legal, Finance and direct experience as executives at a practice management and ambulatory surgery center company.

We have a deep understanding of the transaction process elements and we understand your business because we have acquired and operated specialty practices and surgery centers ourselves.



Shadow Complete Deal

We know your ideal transaction is about more than money. It includes concerns about your team, your patients, your philosophy and most importantly, your role as a physician. We understand that better than anyone else because we have experienced it on both sides of the transaction. We also know that your situation is unlike any other, which is why we work hard to understand and advise to your specifics. Once we understand your strengths and future goals, we work with the right buyers and negotiate deals that fit.

expect education and advise

We believe in educating and advising our clients to help them move forward at the pace they desire. Managing a full M&A process with multiple buyers is critical to achieving the best outcome, but also difficult and time-consuming. It should be handled by a firm that knows the field and can focus on it full time. Bottom line - hiring an expert will help you achieve successful results. Independent academic research shows that sellers who hire an advisor receive a price premium of 6 to 25% over those who do not.
