About Us

A

braxas Advisors are experienced, multi-disciplined professionals who, collectively, have had seats in every role at the Closing Table. As non-practicing CPAs, management consultants, CFOs, operating executives, sales executives, and investment analysts, we have spent major portions of our careers in situations where understanding complex operations and addressing complicated issues were every-day challenges. These experiences directly enhance our efforts with Abraxas clients.  

A Collaborative Approach

This broad expertise of Abraxas Advisors is the foundation of our highly-collaborative process. Each Abraxas Advisor contributes innovative thinking and expertise to each transaction either directly, as a deal-team member, or indirectly through our routine discussions of client engagements. And, each Abraxas Advisor is compensated on every deal completed by our firm. This approach, unique in the industry, assures that each of our clients get the best thinking of our entire team, 

While it take a village to raise a child, it takes a team to get to the Closing Table. The Abraxas Advisors form the core of the team and we work with other specialists to provide:

  • legal advice
  • tax planning for the transaction
  • wealth-management positioning
  • financing strategies 
  • due diligence 
  • closing services

This collaborative approach assures our clients get comprehensive, coordinated advice, leading to success for this most important transaction.
