Our Core Values

  • We take a rigorous and holistic approach to our work. That means stepping back, considering the broad context and assessing the full range of alternatives available to our clients when faced with a strategic decision.
  • We take the time to conduct deep, customized analysis.
  • We challenge conventional wisdom; we question all assumptions.
  • We are tireless in our quest for the right answer.
  • We are focused on creating additional value for our clients every step of the way – from judging the merits of a transaction to the implementation tactics, including pricing and all terms.

"We executed a number of deals with Jean Manas and Foros over the years and appreciate the caliber of their experience and advice. What also stands out is the persistence, speed, and quality of execution, that kind of help matters to us - and our shareholders."

– Mike Gregoire

Former CEO of CA Technologies

"Until this deal, I had never truly understood how essential exceptional counsel can be in reaching a successful outcome. I’ve been involved in numerous transactions and have never seen anything approaching the value you provided to me and the Board in helping us develop a comprehensive strategy. You listened carefully, you provided sage direction, and you kept us focused on doing the right thing."
