Our Approach

Legacy Capital Advisors, LLC is unique, both in our capabilities and our approach to providing Merger & Acquisition services.

First, due to our international reach and relationships, Legacy Capital is able to contact the strongest acquirors on behalf of our clients.  During the last three years, over 20% of the buyers in our transactions have been outside the United States.   Our ability to effectively tap international markets benefits our clients with higher transaction values.

Second, our Managing Directors conduct all phases of the engagement. They are not merely "part of the team" or "actively involved" with the transaction.  Most Investment Banks use junior people to execute many key aspects of the engagement. Our Senior Partners roll up their sleeves and execute each step of the assignment, from designing a marketing strategy to contacting all potential counter parties, negotiating agreements and closing the deal.

Third, Legacy Capital does not believe in a "one size fits all" approach. We evaluate each client's engagement and recommend strategies tailored to their needs. Our process is designed to maximize value and confidentiality, while minimizing business disruptions to our clients.

Finally, Legacy only represents closely-held (typically, family-owned) businesses.  Most other investment banks have conflicts of interest, as the majority of their revenue comes from corporate finance, valuation and divestiture work.  Usually, this work is performed for companies who acquire middle market companies, creating  potential conflicts of interest.  Many investment banks typically derive only a very small portion of their revenues from representing closely held middle market companies.
