Zerbach & Company is supported by its Industry Advisory Board, consisting of 10 renowned industry experts and entrepreneurial personalities. We are a member of the Private Equity Forum NRW and Die Familienunternehmer – ASU e.V.The team combines more than nine decades of relevant corporate finance and transaction experience and the senior management has been working together successfully in an unchanged constellation for more than 15 years. This continuity and experience enables us to have a distinct understanding of the needs of owner-managed, medium-sized companies on the one hand and of professional investment firms, family offices or large international groups on the other. We see ourselves as a listening and independent counterpart. In order to reconcile the often complex requirements of the various interest groups, we are the right partner who can sometimes come up with unusual solutions. In doing so, we are a long-term companion and not a stretch, whereby time-critical projects can of course also be implemented on short timeframes by our experienced team. As a result, our clients benefit from professional advice at eye level, which does not deliver a dogmatic transaction process, but implements your individual requirements and goals through the following features:
