RubinBrown’s team of Mergers & Acquisitions professionals has the experience to help your organization successfully navigate the transaction process. From the initial thought of buying or selling to the critical post-closing and integration activities that must occur, our comprehensive approach will provide you with superior quality and service.

Committed to Middle Market

RubinBrown built its technical and industry knowledge by serving a diverse base of middle market businesses. For over 60 years, we have been trusted advisors to private, family-owned businesses and have developed the necessary bed-side manner that is required when partnering with owner-operators.

Each year, we advise dozens of clients on their transaction opportunities. Whether it is a private equity firm in the midst of a buy-and-build strategy or a first generation business owner evaluating exit options, we have been there and done that.

Dedicated Transaction Teams

As a RubinBrown client, you can expect a dedicated due diligence team with substantial experience. Our team will be responsive to your needs, proactive in communicating with you and provide you with the tailored services and quality deliverables your situation requires – no exceptions and no surprises.  

RubinBrown’s professionals have transaction experience with family/owner-managed businesses, private equity firms, and publicly held companies. We have the breadth and depth of expertise in all aspects of a transaction to deliver results on both domestic and international activities for transactions as small as $1 million and as large as $1 billion.

Tailor-made for YOU 

RubinBrown’s team of professionals understand that every transaction is unique and a one-size fits all approach is not cost effective or beneficial.

Our risk based due diligence process involves significant analysis in your areas of interest, typically the quality of earnings and the quality of assets, to identify trends or relationships that need further investigation. The results of our analysis and interpretation of information we receive from the target is compiled in a detailed due diligence report.
