The Chicago Corporation was originally founded as a regional investment banking firm in 1965 by five investment banking professionals. After growing to more than 1,500 employees, the company was sold in 1997. In April of 2010, the firm was re-established by several former members of The Chicago Corporation, along with a team of investment bankers from other firms and seasoned executives from a variety of industries.[2]

Products and Services[edit]

Services include both domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, mezzanine and bank financing, private placements of equity and senior debt, valuations and fairness opinions, financial restructuring, intellectual property strategy and corporate structuring.

The firm also offers a Wealth Transition Advisory service which facilitates an owner’s ability to build a business to a valuation congruent with longer term family goals and objectives often without the need for an interim transaction.
