Silvergrove represents family and founder owned companies in once in a lifetime or multi-generation decisions. Many of our clients have built their companies from the ground up and have much of their families’ net worth invested in their companies. We understand the difficulty of the decision to sell, merge or recapitalize a family or founder owned company, and the full range of financial, strategic, generational, shareholder, employee and other dynamics which accompany this decision. We also understand the importance of maximizing value and achieving liquidity and diversification for our clients and their families, and of finding the right strategic or financial partner for their companies. Silvergrove has expertise structuring the full range of solutions available to family and founder owned companies, including strategic sales, control and non-control private equity investments, recapitalizations and mergers. We also have extensive experience with the criteria, priorities and strategies of leading public and private, foreign and domestic, strategic and private equity investors and acquirers. We provide the expertise, experience, hands-on execution and level of commitment required to achieve successful M&A outcomes for family and founder owned companies.
