A Word About Our Clients.  We feel it is important spotlight the vision and drive required to build an organization to the point where it is ready for exit.  Our clients did that. Our clients had the vision, persistence and creative problem solving to build the IPM organization from virtually nothing into perhaps the largest medical group of its kind in Northern California.  That is a remarkable effort.  Overnight success doesn’t happen overnight.  Without the client’s dream, there is no transaction to report.

Choice of Legal Counsel.  Every time a client has a choice to retain legal counsel for an M&A transaction it is often a competitive situation.  When a client places their faith in us to assist them with accomplishing their major goals it means a lot to us.  We’re grateful for their trust and confidence, and for the privilege to contribute our skills to their success.
