How will you know?

Practice Areas

At Lazear Capital Partners our services are as diverse as our team. However, no matter what services we provide your company, our ultimate objective is to help you achieve your long-term objectives.

Lazear Capital provides a range of financial advisory services to clients involved in mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, debt and equity transactions and other complex situations requiring sophisticated financial expertise.

In the right circumstances, Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) are an ideal exit strategy for owners. They provide tremendous tax advantages, a way to engage the employees and provide them with wealth, while enabling the selling shareholders to continue to run the business or to remain as active as they desire.

For under-performing or distressed companies, survival demands a clear path to results, and the leadership to ensure the path is taken.

Lazear Capital's Corporate Finance Group provides financial advisory services to middle market businesses, working closely with clients to devise the appropriate capital structure to support their ownership requirements and growth strategies.

Using the same investment techniques that help our clients succeed, Lazear Capital's Merchant Banking Division invests the firm's own capital in a broad range of companies. 

We have been engaged in formulating transactional solutions to complex litigation since our inception in 1999. We work closely with your legal team to create and implement business-driven solutions to litigation problems, including obtaining the necessary financing.
