Specialization in representing sellers of private companies

Our only business is representing sellers of private companies. We never represent buyers, either in acquisition searches or financings, and are thus under no pressure to favor any particular buyer. Our independence keeps us clear of any potential conflicts of interest.

Expertise in middle market transactions

Our niche focus has proved invaluable in assisting our clients on valuation expectations, as well as identifying the most active and aggressive buyers in this sector of the market. We have the expertise and experience necessary to successfully execute deals at premium prices and in a timely manner.

Personal Involvement by our Principals

A Principal of our firm is involved in every transaction from commencement to closing. We use our experience, knowledge and dedication to guide our clients through the intricacies of the deal process to accomplish their goals.


Sperry, Mitchell & Company was founded in 1986 to provide private companies with a level of merger and acquisition expertise generally available only to larger, public companies. Since our founding, we have built our business on a foundation of experience, commitment, integrity and results.

Sperry, Mitchell & Company is one of the most active and successful independent merger advisors in the country. Since our founding, we have arranged over 300 transactions across a wide spectrum of industries.

We achieve outstanding results by providing individualized service to each of our clients. Each transaction has unique demands and priorities. Our staff is geared towards tailoring strategies to meet our clients’ particular circumstances and objectives. For every deal, we create a competitive market of potential acquirers.

We chose to work with Sperry Mitchell primarily because of their people. Starting with Paul and Bea and down through the entire organization, we were impressed with their experience, their knowledge and the personal attention they gave to us. In a very short time, Sperry Mitchell knew almost as much about our business as we did. This allowed them to position and present our business to the best possible buyers and in the best possible light. We couldn’t be happier with the results and would recommend them wholeheartedly.

Sperry Mitchell did something we were not able to do by ourselves – they created an active market for our company. As a result, we achieved a selling price significantly above our expectations, to a company that wasn’t previously on our radar. Their hard work and consistent, clear communication made the selling process much less stressful than it otherwise might have been. I’d use them again in a heartbeat!
