It Takes Teamwork to Plot a Winning Move

When you’re buying, selling, or merging businesses, your two main thoughts are likely to be: “Wow, this is exciting!” and “Wow, this is complicated.”

The stakes are high, and you can’t afford to skip a step or miscalculate. No one person can handle it all. But a team of professionals? That’s another story.
