Established in 1935, The Bigelow Company is an independently owned mergers & acquisitions advisory boutique with a singular and passionate client focus – entrepreneur owner-managers. Frequently, they are multi-generation families. Occasionally owner-managers have institutional investors. They all share a common goal: first, to create significant enterprise value for all stakeholders, and someday, to capture that enterprise value in a capital gain transaction. Leveraging our independence and single minded focus, we have helped hundreds of clients build and capture enterprise value – while honoring their values, their legacy, and the intersection of their professional and personal goals.
