We provide boutique advisory services to both U.S. and international companies, with a particular focus on investment and licensing transactions in the Asia Pacific region.

With more than half of the world’s nearly 8 billion people living in the Asia Pacific region, our clients require a team with experience navigating the complex regional and local issues involved in transacting in this part of the world.  Our mandates involve both facilitating expansion by international firms into North America as well as identifying opportunities for North American firms to expand into large and established Asian markets. 

We advise clients on:

  • Corporate acquisitions

  • Product licensing agreements

  • International IP strategies

  • Transaction structuring and strategic partnerships


Our local presence in Asia and the Middle East differentiates us from other boutique advisors and allows us to efficiently source and close deals in these markets.  Our local teams work with a diverse group of international partners who provide capital markets and pipeline access.
