The Difference

 

Legal Contracts & Agreements

Everything You Need To Stay Protected!

In addition to CPA and accounting practice sales & mergers, Strategic Alliance provides enterprise consulting to CPAs including Operating, Buy/Sell, Non-Compete, Employment, and Consulting Agreements.  We focus on the operating and financial issues of these agreements, from partner compensation to retirement buyouts that protect the practice, the partners, and unforeseen events while crafting a document that is flexible enough to accommodate change and growth. With hundreds of CPA sales, we are able to share the markets ‘best practices’ with our clients and apply them to their unique circumstances.  We find that many organizations, whether they are LLCs, Corporations or Partnerships, have outdated Agreements that require updating to reflect the industry’s current practices in order to remain competitive and relevant.

By using our templates, clients need only engage an attorney for review and minor modifications. This service saves thousands on each transaction.  It also allows our clients to focus on the evaluation of the transaction, including the many items that are brought to light by reviewing the legal documentation.

Exclusive Publications


margers-acquisitions-bookWe are the only consulting firm that has PUBLISHED A BOOK on the subject, “The Complete Guide to Successful Mergers and Acquisitions of CPA Firms”. This Guide documents every step of the process complete with financial analyses, compatibility and risk, legal contracts, and dozens of useful lists, forms and procedures for the merger or sale of CPA firms. But perhaps more valuable, are the many real life examples included that demonstrate how other firms have handled specific negotiations, financing, consulting agreements, and dozens of other issues that necessitate careful consideration and resolution.

Our CPAs, MBAs, and CVAs speak around the country for CPE credits on how to plan an Exit Strategy NOW in order to obtain the highest value for your practice once you are ready to sell. We also hold MERGER SYPOSIUMS which demonstrate how a merger can create many of the opportunities that may not be within reach without partnering with another firm. Whether you are looking to implement a short or long-term exit strategy, buy out a partner, or sell an interest in your firm, or buy a firm – we can help (link to Live Chat).
