Driving exceptional outcomes for our clients

We bring decades of experience in bulge-bracket investment banking across a variety of industries. Our senior-level bankers lead every facet of deal execution, resulting in trusted, long-term partnerships and exceptional outcomes for our clients.

What You Get

Working With ADC

Broad Array of Services

ADC provides a comprehensive suite of M&A, capital raising and restructuring advisory services to leading private and public companies.

Senior-Level Attention

Unlike other firms where managing directors “pitch” and junior bankers execute, we understand the critical importance of senior attention to successful transactions. Every client assignment with ADC is led by a senior professional with support from a highly experienced deal team.

Experience

Our Partners have over 250 years of collective transaction experience, and many have worked together for 20 years or more at some of the world’s preeminent investment banks.

Exceptional Outcomes

Our goal is to achieve outsized successes for our clients. Our track record is exceptional and we structure our fees to incentivize success.

Unique Mindset

We provide a unique perspective to our clients, leveraging our Partners’ experience as heads of industry groups at bulge-bracket banks and regional investment banking firms, as private equity investors, and C- level operating executives. We know what investors want and what our clients need and expect from us.

Long-Term Relationships

Most of our business comes from long-term relationships. Clients and referral sources like working with us because of our high integrity, responsiveness and exceptional results.

As a privately-owned boutique investment banking firm, we are frequently referred new business opportunities from attorneys, accountants, YPO members, former clients, and other friends of the firm.

We have a tremendous amount of relationship capital invested in every transaction, which we treat with the attention and care as if we were owners ourselves. We have scores of extremely satisfied clients available to share their experiences.
