"We initially engaged Tuck Advisors for UFO™ Response. However, when that UFO flew away, we asked Tuck Advisors to help us with a global auction process. James, the firm's founder and a serial entrepreneur, told us that we weren't ready - that we needed to take certain steps to strengthen our company to make us ready to go to market and have a successful outcome. Rather than have us and his team spend energy that would result in a sub-optimal outcome, he gave us his honest opinion. We're working on our business now, to be ready to go to market next year, assuming we hit the targets James and his team have laid out."

- Alex, CEO, sell-side client 

"More than just diving in deep into the particulars of our business, James and the team at Tuck have gone all in on their understanding of our market and our competitors. The result is not just a great M&A Advisory, but a strategic partner in actually growing our business!” 

- Philip, CEO, sell-side client 

“James and Tuck Advisors are the best solution for end-to-end management of your acquisition process saving you an immense amount of time and maximizing the amount of *serious* buyers that you interact with. James is incredibly well-connected and he personally made the introduction to the CEO of the publicly traded company that ended up acquiring our company.” 

- Parsa, Founder & CEO, sell-side client 

"Tuck Advisors was instrumental in guiding our digital marketplace company through a successful series A and eventual acquisition by a public company. We wanted a smaller firm with a more hands-on approach that would take the time to educate us as we navigated through the process - James and his team did exactly that. He is now an important advisor in our next startup!" 

- Mike, Founder, sell-side client

“James and the entire Tuck Advisors team were consummate professionals. As an ultimate buyer of a company James was representing, I found him and his team to be highly collaborative, creative and thoughtful problem solvers, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with him throughout the entire deal process. I would enthusiastically recommend James and his team to any prospective seller.” 

- Patrick, buyer of a Tuck Advisors sell-side client

“Tuck Advisors has truly set the bar for both high quantity and quality searches for our $8 billion Private Equity firm! The team’s quick and thorough understanding of our objectives combined with James’ expertise/network in the education space has already resulted in a number of very attractive potential partnerships. This is only the start and we couldn’t be happier with the incredible work the Tuck team has produced!” 

- Emily, Investment Professional, buy-side client

“We've engaged Tuck Advisors for the past two years to help our $100 million education company acquire tuck-in acquisitions. They have sourced 1000+ targets for us and sent over 10,000 emails on our behalf -- all "by hand" (not some automated campaign). We have closed several transactions thanks to them and have several other companies under LOI. Their work has been transformative to our business and we recommend them highly -- they've been a wonderful partner and thought leader for us.”

- Steve, CFO, buy-side client
