Allan Taylor & Company

** M&A brokers focused on every aspect of selling your business **

Since October 2006, Allan Taylor has been focused exclusively on helping business owners with the sale of their most valuable asset: their business.

We take your life’s work as seriously as you do. We give careful thought and consideration to each engagement we take, plus we make sure that our strengths are a good match for you and your goals for a sale. We’ll give you our honest opinion throughout the entire process, something we hope you will notice from our very first meeting!

** Quality over quantity makes us a “boutique” firm **

At Allan Taylor we build relationships before we broker deals. In order to give you our best, we prefer to work closely with a small number of successful and dedicated business owners. We spend hundreds of hours on the different phases involved in selling your business (typically a minimum of 200 hours), working collaboratively with your other advisors, as well as the buyer and their deal team. Our goal is to avoid disappointment by making sure all of our expectations are aligned before moving forward with selling your business.

We do our best to partner with business owners who have similar values -- including honesty, transparency, respect and follow through.

** How we differ from traditional business brokers **

Finding the right people to help you sell your business can be a difficult task. Our clients tend to need a firm with a higher level of expertise and professionalism than the typical “Main Street” business brokerage firms, yet who are too small for the world of investment bankers.

Allan Taylor fills the gap.

We don’t run our business based on a real estate model and we won’t try to “sell” you on selling your business. On the contrary, we’ve found that successful sales require informed decisions, adequate preparation and a firm commitment from everyone involved. If we don’t think all of the ingredients are there for a successful sale, we’ll tell you as much and suggest working together on a plan to get you there.
