Consulting 

Beechwood believes that a successful transaction is often a function of detailed preparation which results in a clear and compelling story for investors or buyers. Such preparation can be as simple as recommending that reviewed or audited financial statements must be obtained and as complex as suggesting and implementing strategic and operational changes that help the seller to enhance sales and EBITDA prior to a sale.

Much of the expertise is employed in our turnaround advisory services, family transition and business growth strategies services.

Beechwood's partners have had extensive experience in strategy, finance and operations in Europe and can help global companies comply with complex regulations throughout the EU. Our partners have worked with numerous household name companies throughout Europe, South America and Asia. Beechwood Capital Advisors extends its team with professionals in every discipline needed to make your transactions smooth and cost effective. We have a national network of vetted Attorneys, Accountants, Commercial Bankers and Wealth Managers to broadly support our clients' requirements.
