$1 Million Deferred!

“Gary helped us defer – and for a long time – nearly $1 million in what would have otherwise been an immediate state and federal tax liability when we sold our group practice.”

Partners in the Process

“As a practice owner of 32 years I had always attempted to manage my practice well, but when presented with an opportunity to sell, I became aware of how little I knew about the process.”

Experience and Information for Making the Hard Decisions

“After 37 years in veterinary practice, I considered myself to be a successful clinician and a capable businessman, but I was filled with uncertainty and apprehension regarding retirement. Dr. Gary Ackerman … provided the critical information that I needed to negotiate the legal and financial maze associated with the sale of a veterinary practice. The information provided was critical to making the hard decisions that govern the amount of after-tax retiree income that my wife and I receive, as well as determining the financial legacy that we will leave behind.”

Ackerman is Uniquely Qualified

“We deeply appreciate Dr. Ackerman’s guidance. His experience as a practicing veterinarian and his expertise in finance make him uniquely qualified to advise veterinarians who are actively planning their retirements, and he continues to closely follow and advise us long after the sale.”

A Novice Doesn’t Know what they Don’t Know

“A few thoughts on the selling process I hope will be helpful. As you may remember I had already started shopping my practice when I contacted you. I had spread sheets and started relationships with 11 corporate buyers and quite frankly was realizing how daunting a task it was going to be when we met. As I look back now, I realize how ill-prepared I was for such an undertaking and can’t imagine going through the process without your and Trey’s help.  There were just too many things I wouldn’t have had a clue to ask. In this arena, a novice doesn’t know what they don’t know, and it really takes professionals such as you and Trey to unpack the many considerations and nuances incumbent in such transactions.”

“Naturally, being a control freak, as many of us vets are, I was a bit hesitant to trust at first. Boy, am I glad I did. The trip to the group meeting was invaluable.”
