Mergers, Acquisitions, and Partnerships Consulting

To succeed, they’ll need to identify the right partnership approach—from full-on mergers to formal affiliations to more casual collaborations—and make the necessary internal changes to support integration.

Our approach

We know what it takes to partner successfully because we treat all our consulting engagements as partnerships in their own right. We adopt your goals as ours and make it our mission to arm your team with the knowledge and skills needed to continue making progress long after our exit. A standard partnership typically includes:

  • Strategy development: We assess current operations and conduct due diligence on both organizations to identify the partnership’s true potential and ensure a seamless transition with transparent communication. We also establish the foundation for successful integration and optimal return on investment.
  • Implementation: We work on your behalf to finalize negotiations and close the transaction. During implementation, we provide the executive, operational, and clinical resources needed to drive strategic initiatives forward, fill gaps in expertise, increase capacity, or all of the above. Our proven interim management approach allows us to quickly and positively impact your performance.
