Mayer Brown represents Financo in sale to Raymond James Financial

A Mayer Brown team represented Financo, LLC, a global boutique investment bank focused on the consumer sector, and its owners, in their definitive agreement to sell the company to Raymond James Financial, Inc., a publicly traded global investment bank.

The integration of Financo’s more than 25 experienced professionals with Raymond James’ complementary consumer and retail practice positions the firm as a global market-leader in consumer and retail investment banking. The combined consumer and retail sector will be led by John Berg, the CEO of Financo, who has nearly 30 years of experience as an investment banker and private-equity investor in the consumer and retail space. The transaction is expected to close in the firm’s fiscal second quarter.

Earlier in 2020, the same Mayer Brown team advised MVP Capital, LLC, a San Francisco-based boutique investment bank that provides a range of advisory services to clients in the technology, media and telecom sector, on its sale to Houlihan Lokey, Inc., a publicly traded global investment bank.

The Mayer Brown team included: Corporate & Securities – partners Edward Best (Chicago) and Rebecca Bothamley (London) and associates Valentine Bleicher, Matt Streit and Jack Donovan (all Chicago); Tax Transactions & Consulting – partners Zal Kumar and JoonBeom Pae and associate Minju Kim (all NY); Employment & Benefits – partners Ryan Liebl (Chicago) and Miriam Bruce and associate Sara Reeve-Young (both London); Litigation & Dispute Resolution – counsel Kim Leffert (Chicago); IP – partner Melissa Anyetei and associate Emily Nash (both Chicago); and FSRE – partner Marlon Paz and associate Kyle Swan (both DC).
