Case Studies / Success Story:
Pat was working with a manufacturing client who had built his business from the ground up and was ready to sell. While the client had interested buyers, the business had some issues that complicated the sale. Pat sat down with the client and they put together a game plan to help shore up the issues and make the business more attractive to the market. With the client’s cooperation and collaboration, the business quickly sold and the client was able to close on very favorable terms.

“Discuss upfront and in detail ultimate goals, business, timing and unique issues.”
