Merger and Acquisition Advisory

Chuck Troe’s 21 year career in private law practice was focused on mergers and acquisitions, corporate and commercial finance, and securities transactions.  He was a partner in three large law firms in Chicago, Denver and Los Angles, including at Mayer Brown LLP where he practiced for nine years in Chicago and opened that firm’s Denver Office where he served as partner in charge for six years.  In his investment banking career, he worked primarily on sell-side mergers and acquisition and corporate finance transactions, including six years as Managing Director at Barrington Associates.  Although his industry experience was very broad, he has particular expertise in medical device, real estate syndication, and oil and gas.

At ATHENA ADVISORS LLC, Chuck is able to provide merger and acquisition advisory services to middle market companies.  In situations where a company has been approached by a prospective buyer and an extensive marketing program is inappropriate, he can advise in all aspects of potential transactions and related financing and negotiate on behalf of the company.  Where a company is considering a liquidity event, he can function as an interim CFO or Corporate Development officer.  That function would include formulation of strategic goals,  identifying and evaluating full service investment banking firms, and supervising the processes undertaken by a firm that is engaged.

Lisa Troe is available to advise on matters related to accounting, financial statement disclosure, and due diligence matters that frequently are encountered in the course of merger and acquisition and financing transactions.

ATHENA ADVISORS LLC can structure compensation arrangements that are suitable for a wide range of circumstances.
