 3. Practice Build-Outs & Team Lifts 

We build out practices under senior leaders, with industry sector rainmakers, relevant service offerings and necessary support staff. 

  • Carve-outs or team lifts allow growth without the cost, complexities, time-lag or deal risk of a formal acquisition.

  • Unparalleled access to leadership prior to formal moves gives our clients inside track on such opportunities.

  • Opportunities are provided prior to formal, market-wide auctions, usually saving clients millions of dollars.

  • We recruit each individual within a team in a silo-ed manner, insulating both executives and client, to the greatest extent possible, from solicitation litigation risk.
