Transaction Advisory Services - Market Leader

Our TAS practice is a dynamic and energetic team and has experienced explosive growth over the last 5+ years. While our firm is based in Atlanta, we have started expanding this practice into new geographies. We put boots on the ground in Texas last year as our pilot market for expansion and have had much success adding new clients and strategic referral channels there already. We are looking to do the same in several key markets over the next 5-7 years with Denver as next target market.

By design, our team is structured uniquely as compared to most traditional TAS practices. We generally run a much more autonomous environment where associates can lead deals earlier in their career and build the skill set as well as relationships, they need to be successful to go the distance in any environment. We offer minimal travel and little to no weekend work as we are open about setting expectations with clients. This allows for a much more sustainable career path in TAS – avoiding burnout that is ever so common in this space.
