M&A Advisory and Investment Banking: Services: CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen)

Get the most out of your transaction

When you’re selling a business, you want the best terms and the highest possible value. It takes high-level leadership, exceptional negotiation and marketing skills, creative negotiation strategies and a passion to understand your distinctive needs.

CLA’s investment bankers are part of a family of professionals working together to provide a tailored advisory model to clients across the United States in a wide range of industries. We leverage our decades of experience in hundreds of transactions to truly understand what matters most to you in a transaction:

  • Prepare your business—and your owners—for the sales process
  • Find the right buyer, not just approach the same long list of potential buyers every time
  • Improving the terms of a transaction
  • Structure the transaction according to your objectives and needs, guided by an investment banking team working alongside your legal advisors
  • A focus on you, the business owner, not on future business with the buyer
