Big Things Come In
Small Packages

Shefford Associates is a premier M&A advisory firm focused strictly on small business value creation.

We work with small business owners, and their stakeholders, to create value in their businesses – making them more productive, more competitive, more profitable, and more valuable, through acquisitions.

Creating Value

Participating on the
Buy-Side While Creating Value for the Sell-Side


You can buy a high-quality small business for a price that allows you, and your investors, to earn an excellent return on investment.


When selling a small business, when you sell, and to whom you sell, will determine much of the price you receive.


A transformational acquisition strategy can be used as a catalyst for change to create an entirely new or much larger company.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We provide a full range of advisory services related to mergers & acquisitions, divestitures, and restructurings, including valuation, assessment of strategic direction to maximize value, finance strategy, transaction development and negotiations. The firm’s principals have extensive experience in all aspects of acquiring, selling, and restructuring companies. The firm’s extensive relationships allow it to identify and contact the appropriate strategic partners to initiate, structure and negotiate even the most difficult transaction.

Restructuring & Reorganization

For companies facing financial underperformance, or lenders and other stakeholders involved with them, Shefford delivers restructuring solutions designed to build a platform for swift recovery and sustained future success. We thoroughly assess all revitalization options, develop a plan of action in partnership with management, creditors and other stakeholders, and mobilize the resources required for effective implementation.

Our business restructuring partners have full access to Shefford’s expertise in planning complex restructurings. Whether through formal or informal proceedings, our goal is to develop, and execute, a detailed, targeted action plan for improvement, simplification, or divestment.
