BUSINESS OWNERS: WHY FAIRFIELD?

At Fairfield, several qualities set us apart from other investors:

Legacy preservation

We take our commitments seriously and we take the commitments you’ve made to your employees and your community seriously. After an acquisition we’ll retain your employees and invest in their development so they can benefit from the company’s next chapter.

Structural flexibility

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for the sale of your business. As non-institutional investors who have been on both sides of the negotiating table, Fairfield has the autonomy, flexibility, and expertise to work with you to tailor exit strategies and succession plans that maximize absolute value while best fitting your life plans, aspirations for future involvement with the company, and personal financial situation.

Ability to close

Selling a business can be complex, but it doesn’t have to be risky or stressful. Fairfield has the transaction experience; financial, legal, and commercial advisors; and financial backing to structure, manage, and close deals - allowing you to focus your energy on what matters: running your business and living life.
