Orca’s clients are typically privately-held businesses and vary in size from $10 million in sales to $100+ million. Orca's 30-year legacy of quality transactions brings an unrivaled record of closing success.


Our Approach

At Orca, clients work strictly with Senior Principals from transaction kickoff through closing. Orca works a disciplined process. First, we listen. We meticulously analyze your options, and craft your specific solution. Your unique story is eloquently and confidentially told to precisely the right audience. We provide exclusive representation, and run a highly confidential, targeted process. Engagements are structured with an upfront retainer, plus a success fee based on proceeds, due at completion. You win, we win.

While integral to the deal team, clients enjoy the freedom to run their business, and the objectivity to make their best decisions.
