“One of the biggest impacts I’ve made for a client involved working with him as a fledgling business to becoming a $50 million (top line) company with multiple locations in two states over 10 years. The journey involved buying out several different investors over the years. And, I helped him save significant tax dollars through strategic tax planning and transaction consulting. The tax savings helped accelerate the growth of his business by preserving cash. He used that cash to invest back into the company or redeem other investors.”
