Mergers and Acquisitions Services

In today’s competitive business environment, expansion through acquisition is frequently a keystone business strategy.  Many times, a merger transaction is THE single most important transaction in the history of a business.  The professionals at The LBA Group have extensive experience helping clients buy and sell businesses.  In addition, we offer pre and post-transaction advisory services to non-client companies and individuals contemplating expansion through acquisition.

The key to a successful transaction is teamwork.  The LBA Group works closely with your entire team of advisors to ensure you maximize your value and minimize transaction-related income taxes and costs.
