Mergers & Acquisitions

Beyond the Deal.



We apply our Quadrant Thinking ® method to all of the services we provide.  Quadrant Thinking ® is a four part process we have developed over the years to clearly define your goals, or mission and the obstacles or speedbumps along the way.  We begin each project with you in Quadrant 1: Clarity and work through the subsequent Quadrants: Solution (2), Implementation (3) and Sustainability (4) to complete a full circle of thorough problem solving.  This practice allows us to look at your project or problem at a high level and make decisions or set goals with your big picture in mind.




When acquiring, merging or selling a business, it is important to gain a clear picture through detailed analysis, thorough due diligence and quality information about your potential acquisition, merger or sale.  At RSJ, we provide you the guidance and assistance you need through these processes, with the help of our quadrant planning method.  Our services begin with planning and identifying acquisition or selling targets, and include negotiations, structuring and closing.  We help our clients identify both the value and risk in any transaction and perform the necessary due diligence to ensure that their interests are protected at all times.
