Growth is the game.

[ We’re your MVP. ]

In the game of business, we know the rules, and we play to win. The ADVOS team has decades of experience managing and executing significant transactions for our clients. In particular, our clients value our first-hand experience as management counsel in privately held companies backed by Private Equity and REIT, handling mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, as well as transitions of ownership between financial and strategic partners. Our approach reduces distraction for the management team and ensures the legal aspects of the transaction are delivered on time, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

We don’t just paper the deal; we help you craft the right deal and carry it through to the final buzzer.

  • Due Diligence Analysis: Due diligence can make or break a deal. Whether you’re buying or selling, leverage our experience to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible.
  • Transaction Management: Every deal has many moving parts and players involved. We coordinate with the deal team to develop and manage the game plan.
  • Expert Negotiation and Drafting: The game isn’t over until the ink is dry. Put our advanced expertise in negotiation and the finer points of drafting to work for you.

How far will you go? Let’s find out together.
