We do One Thing
We believe a company is bigger than the product or service it sells; it stands for something. Something with meaning and purpose. A company impacts its employees, customers, and community. Because of this, when it comes time to sell your business, we believe a successful sale is more than just a financial transaction.
We dig deep into our client's business to understand its unique value, prepare the company for sale, and position it most effectively to potential buyers. Never losing sight of our client's goals and objectives, we aggressively market to a targeted group of buyers in search of an outlier who places a premium value on the company. Until the very end, we control the sale process to create competitive tension among buyers. With leverage, we maximize transaction value and negotiate what's most important for each client.
At Freeland Briese, we are an investment bank that does one thing: create value for our clients.
Perspective is Everything
Our investment bankers are experts in finance and accounting, business operations, and law. Our diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and perspectives ensure our clients receive fresh thinking, fresh ideas, and a balance of deep and broad expertise.
For every engagement, we assemble a team with the most appropriate experience and expertise. No matter the challenge, we focus on delivering practical advice and impactful results.
Experienced in adding value
We strive to build a relationship of trust with every client and with every partner for the long-term. Nearly all of our work is referral driven. This is because our clients and partners know we put their interests ahead of our own. We only will take on an engagement if we believe we can create value for our client substantially in excess of our professional fees.
We proudly serve entrepreneurs and middle market businesses across the United States. We have significant experience representing clients across a variety of industries including manufacturing, distribution, food and beverage, healthcare, environmental services, e-commerce, technology, and business services.
