Hildebrandt International has, for more than 20 years, been the leading consulting firm in facilitating successful law firm mergers. Hildebrandt has had a hand in many of the largest mergers, as well as dozens of smaller mergers that, in many cases, have been just as complex.
Equally important, we have advised hundreds of firms regarding mergers that ultimately did not come to fruition. While many firms are open to the possibility of merger, they come to recognize, with the help of our consultants, that some prospective mergers do not make strategic or business sense. We measure our success both in terms of the successful mergers we have seen through to completion and the proposed mergers we have advised against.
Hildebrandt International's consulting team can and does work with law firms of every size in all aspects of strategy formation, assessment and evaluation of target firms, facilitation and implementation. No one has more - or greater depth - of experience in this area. In addition to the sheer number of mergers in which we have played an active role, what sets Hildebrandt apart is our team approach to mergers. We can assemble an appropriate team of professionals with the necessary financial, strategic, governance, marketing and technology experience to help firms deal with every aspect of the merger, from strategic planning to implementation.
Because of our unparalleled knowledge of law firms and extensive experience facilitating mergers, we provide the greatest value when playing the role of advisor and facilitator throughout merger discussions and implementation.
Typically, we bring a firm the greatest value when we are involved early on and in all aspects of a proposed merger. In some cases, however, we work with firms on only certain aspects of their mergers. We have dealt with the most difficult issues and obstacles that arise in merger discussions.
Our consultants regard each prospective merger as unique. As with every assignment, we treat all of our merger engagements with complete confidentiality. – less–ZoomInfo
