Doida Law Group was proud to be the M&A counsel for LoHi Merchant Bank‘s recent acquisition of Andrews Securities. Doida Law Group represents all categories of participants in M&A transactions, including buyers, sellers, major stock holders, management team member, individual investors, and others. Our team has worked on public and private merger and acquisition transactions with aggregate deal values ranging from several hundred thousand dollars to several hundred million dollars.
This acquisition brings together two synergistic firms under the management of LoHi Merchant Bank co-founders Brett Story and Bobbi Babitz. Here’s what Brett Story had to say about working with our team:
“I had the pleasure of working with Doida Law Group for an important business acquisition in the Fall of 2017. Their team was enthusiastic, responsive, collaborative, and felt like a true partner throughout the transaction. I worked closely with Vaughn and he was able to keep a tight rein on the deal, ensuring that every detail was handled properly and efficiently. Their firm offers significant value to a company that is going through an acquisition on either the sell or buy sides. I’d recommend the team at Doida Law Group for anyone who is considering an important transaction for their business.”
LoHi Merchant Bank was founded in 2013. They specialize in capital raising and M&A transactions for middle market companies in North America and Europe where it acts as both intermediary and in a co-investment capacity on a deal by deal basis.
Andrews Securities is a FINRA registered broker dealer with over 20 licensed representatives in 10 states.
The business, to be renamed LoHi Securities, offers tailored compliance services for independent investment bankers, banking teams and alternative investment funds. The acquisition will further fuel LoHi Securities’ growth across the country and allow it to attract larger investment banking teams as well as top-tier placement agents working with private investment funds and registered investment advisors who require FINRA registration.
LoHi Securities has invested heavily in technology to enhance its service offering – resulting in strong growth in 2017. Additionally, in contrast to other small broker dealers which outsource compliance functions, LoHi Securities maintains a dedicated, full-time staff with decades of finance, legal, technology and operations experience.
