The Checkmate Approach



Holistic View











We strive to align our success with yours through win-win compensation structures.



We use our team’s multi-disciplinary expertise in finance, law, operations, and marketing

to develop holistic strategies.


We are committed to long-term value creation throughout our client’s evolution,

rather than to specific, short-term projects.


With a boutique approach, our team prioritizes a select number of deals each year.


A limited number of mandates allows us to prioritize speed and agility in each transaction.



The big firm backgrounds of our team in entrepreneurial and transactional roles drives a

deal-making mindset.
