M & A Consulting

Mestel & Company has more than 31 years of success in identifying strategic opportunities, facilitating law firm mergers & acquisitions, and moving attorney groups.  We accomplish these while ensuring the mutual alignment of platforms, culture, and objectives.  We are widely recognized as a trusted advisor for law firms as they shape their plans for long-term growth and expansion.

Law firm mergers are highly complex transactions that require expert knowledge, experience, and timing. When assessing the viability of a potential merger, we analyze and identify the advantages, cultural compatibility, practice fit, and financial similarity. We know how to structure productive merger discussions by building a concise agenda, drilling down into any red flag issues, and identifying all the upside potential. We understand the pressures and the importance of building a solid practice, department, or firm. Our goal for every merger is to help both sides achieve harmony, mutual benefit, and a balance of risk and reward.

As the legal industry continues its rapid evolution – triggered by changes in the way law firm clients operate their businesses, the nature of their client base, technological advancement, and economic globalization – we thrive on the exciting changes in the industry and view them as strategic growth opportunities for law firms.
