The Monolith team has over 30 years of mergers and acquisitions, investment banking, and financial services experience and have completed or been involved in over 20 domestic and foreign transactions. In those transactions, we have provided broker-dealer services, legal support in drafting and negotiating letters of intent, purchase agreements, and legal due diligence. Our team is engaged at the start of each engagement by developing a corporate and strategic plan. We have led deals ranging in size from $4M to $250M.

Our global deal experience has culminated in the completion of a domestic deal within three weeks of a signed letter of intent. Internationally, we have seen Western European deals a bit more involved with the UK being more familiar and German deals requiring stricter German code compliance. Deals in Europe, UK and Germany were all successfully completed meeting the internal target acquisition timetable and all local country requirements. Brazil would be one of our most challenging experience, where the language and culture presented hidden blocking issues. We became familiar with the acquisition target in Brazil over several years and spent 9 months on the transaction, mainly becoming familiar with its unique tax and import/export regulations.

Monolith is adapting a new approach to Mergers and Acquisitions Consulting space, by building an ecosystem that modernizes the fragmented M&A space. Our mission is to bring a transparent and efficient M&A process and market place. We approach each relationship with the highest ethical standards.
