We’re here for you throughout your business lifecycle.

We genuinely care about our clients and want to help you succeed. From startup through expansion and liquidity, we provide the knowledgebase and resources you need to thrive at every stage of your business growth.

As accountants, advisors and specialists, we understand the need to manage for immediate and long-term value in the face of lengthy, high-cost research and development cycles, government approvals and difficult clinical trials — each of which can significantly impact your company’s financial position.

Our team can guide you through funding as a startup, helping to ensure you’re meeting all the requirements for tax and accounting compliance, and offering advice on how to best structure your company based on factors like the number of employees you have and current market conditions.

As your business rapidly expands, we’ll help support your growth needs — from hiring the right talent and preparing for more targeted funding rounds to maintaining tax and accounting compliance and developing better security processes and procedures.

And as you enter the liquidity phase, we’ll work with you to choose the services and solutions that support your path forward, whether that’s going public through IPO, merging or being acquired, selling through a secondary market transaction or a private equity sale.
