At Hamilton, Cherry, Spradlin & Mandrell, Ltd., our experienced staff of business consultants is committed to assisting you through every phase of the business life cycle, applying our experience and insight to provide you with meaningful and practical strategies and solutions to address the issues facing your business. From incorporation through business succession planning, we provide the comprehensive advice, insight, and technical expertise you need to help your business achieve success at any stage.
Starting a business is challenging on many levels, from the hard work of establishing yourself in the marketplace to the complexities of managing the paperwork, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed without expert advice. With years of real-world, hands-on business experience behind us, our team of detail-oriented professionals will not only help you to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of corporations, partnerships, and LLCs, ensuring that you select the right entity for your new business, but can also guide you through formulating a business plan, dealing with any necessary registration, permitting, or licensing processes, managing compliance with local, state, and federal laws, and can even provide a market evaluation to allow you to position your new business as advantageously as possible in the marketplace, or a business valuation, if you are considering the purchase of an existing business.
If you are thinking about buying a business, we have the hands-on experience, the passion for detail, and the insight to provide a holistic view of any transaction, from comprehensive assessments of potential purchases to business valuation services to analysis of the financial, tax, and operational implications of any purchase. We can advise prospective business purchasers about local market conditions, industry trends, and the financial condition of an acquisition candidate. Alternatively, if you are thinking of selling your existing business, we will help you plan for the sale, identifying any structural or financial changes you need to make to maximize your company’s value and obtain the best possible sale price and contract payout terms.
Mergers and acquisitions are complex transactions that can have a substantial and lasting impact on both you and your company’s future. Our team of experienced counselors has the practical business experience and insight to provide the creative, effective advice you need to navigate the challenges inherent in any merger or acquisition. From performing the necessary due diligence and requisite financial analysis to investigating alternative financing sources to assessing the tax implications to guiding you through financial disclosures and non-compete agreements, our experienced Mergers and Acquisitions counselors work with you to obtain the best possible outcome in any transaction. We bring the sound judgment, business acumen, deep resources, and responsive, collaborative philosophy you need to protect your interests.
Financial planning is critical to the success of any business, and we are committed to working with you to create a thoughtful and comprehensive plan to achieve your business objectives. We provide a complete range of financial and business forecasting services, and can also create customized "What If" planning scenarios to help management foresee and plan for unexpected business contingencies. We have the experience, the innovative thinking, and the insight to help your organization identify and manage risk, quantify resources, and formulate and achieve your strategic goals and objectives.
You worked hard to establish a successful business, and thoughtful business succession or exit planning is the key to ensuring that your business will continue to flourish in the future, without your day-to-day involvement. Too often, healthy, successful businesses are negatively impacted by a lack of succession or exit planning, from unclear transfer of leadership to liquidity problems stemming from unexpected inheritance taxes or costs. As experts in the field of business succession and business exit planning, we can help you to design a comprehensive strategy to avoid these problems and achieve your objectives, giving you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your business will enjoy a smooth continuance, and your heirs and business associates will be well protected.
