WilliamsMarston provides specialised consulting services including transaction support in M&A, divestitures, initial public offerings, technical accounting, interim management and process improvement to more than 300 public, private equity-backed, and pre-IPO companies. With offices in Boston and New York, the combined firm will be more than 50 people registering an impressive track record of growth since its founding in 2014.
