“Eight years ago, I had the opportunity to meet the team after they successfully guided one of the most respected companies in our industry to a successful transaction. We continued to stay in touch and meet. When the time came to put our company on the market, there was no other firm that we felt as comfortable with, and knew that they would do the best job for Michel Design Works. We were not disappointed! They helped advise us and guide us throughout our transaction. We could not have done it without them. I would recommend them highly and with confidence.”
