Align Capital Partners realises investment in WilliamsMarston

Align Capital Partners (ACP) gas sold its interest in WilliamsMarston, a specialist in providing complex accounting, tax and valuation advisory services, to Kelso & Company (Kelso).

Since ACP’s initial investment in July 2020, the Firm has achieved transformational growth under the leadership of WM’s Co-Founders, Landen Williams and Jon Marston.

During the last two years, WM’s team increased to more than 225 of the industry’s leading professionals. Growth was driven by expanding existing client relationships, adding new clients through best-in-class client service and completing six add-on acquisitions. These acquisitions helped broaden the Firm’s service offering and helped WM add top talent consistent with its highly respected brand and collaborative team-based culture.

Partner Matt Beesley, operating partner Dave Perotti and senior associate Aaron Lewis were also key members of ACP’s investment team. William Blair, Houlihan Lokey and BellMark Partners acted as financial advisors to WM, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal counsel to the Firm.
