DM-SwirlWe’re a Recognized Leader

Clark Schaefer Hackett’s (CSH) Private Equity Group has been awarded the prestigious 2015 ACG Cincinnati Deal Maker Award in the Service Provider category. Our clients nominated us for this program, which recognizes outstanding companies with proven track records of leadership, innovation and success through the art of the deal.

Value Throughout the Investment Life Cycle

At CSH, our success serving the private equity community is based on one key ingredient, Value. Our private equity clients consider us a cost-effective alternative to national and international firms. Here’s why:

  • We Know the Market

    Serving privately-held, mid-sized companies is not a “part-time” focus, it’s all we do. Our core clients are middle-market dynamic growth companies, and many are (or have been) private equity‒backed. We understand your goals and speak your language because we work with the same companies, stakeholders and teams you do.
  • Relationships Matter

    We believe that doing the work and serving the client is not necessarily the same thing. One is about a talent for numbers; the other is about interacting with people. At CSH, relationships matter, and we believe that creating a supportive, helpful, working relationship is perhaps the most valuable talent we can offer. We become part of your team, and look for every opportunity to help you succeed. We provide proactive advice, and ideas to help you achieve your goals.
  • We Create Value

    You need advisement and solutions structured to meet or exceed your expectations. We keep this top of mind as we serve you, because we know that creating value throughout the investment life cycle is the key to continuing a successful relationship.

    Our dedicated team of professionals possesses the industry knowledge and connections to advise you on all aspects of private equity transactions, from fund structure and deal flow to value creation and exit strategy execution.
