Our familiarity with industry trends, financial details, and tax efficient transaction structures allows JIAN to find creative solutions that work for both parties. Our outstanding record in completing transactions is a result of our thorough understanding of our client's finances and personal goals and objectives. We formed The JIAN Group to assist owners of private companies in defining exit planning, growth, succession and diversification strategies. We have earned success through our uncompromising dedication to the needs and goals of our clients.  Our continuing goal is to create win-win situations for sellers and buyers, and their employees and customers while creating and delivering maxim value to our clients and their business.
