Our position remains the same today as it did then, we realize that our clients wanted hands-on support from experts they could trust. We have proven over the years that CA&A professionals can do the work it typically takes a larger group to do. CA&A has the same expertise and experience of the large firms, but by maintaining our boutique status we don’t have to expend unnecessary resources to promote ourselves or to impress our clients with how big we are. From Investment Banking to Crisis Management, we are here to serve you.
