Our firm has been assisting sellers of Greater Cincinnati companies for over 30 years. We understand the right way to prepare a business for its sale – and the proper procedures to accomplish a sale without employees, customers or competitors finding out.


Whether you are looking to purchase your first business, or you’re a company searching for acquisitions to enhance your current operations, you will find that the detailed information prepared on our client companies will allow for quick analysis to determine interest.
