Bates Group’s David Birnbaum on Compliance and Acquisition for FP Transitions’ Roundtable

Bates group is pleased to announce the release of this first of three special Roundtable Talks featuring FP Transitions’ Marcus Hagood’s one-on-one interview with Bates Managing Director David Birnbaum to discuss the importance of compliance when it comes to acquisitions, including:

  • The value of a thorough compliance review to ensure a smooth and successful acquisition;
  • Detecting and evaluating potential regulatory obstacles that could derail a transaction;
  • And how the ever-looming DOL Rule – along with the new US administration – might provide additional challenges and considerations.

In forthcoming Roundtable Talks, David will discuss the necessity of performing a thorough compliance audit as part of business growth or in preparation for a sale. Plus, David and Marcus explore how to determine whether your team is devoting enough attention to protecting the business, and how to make managing both compliance AND the business easier.
