McLean Group Expands its Business Valuation and Maritime Transaction Advisory Practices with Strategic Investment in DLS Marine (Dufour, Laskay & Strouse)
MCLEAN, VA – March 11, 2021 – The McLean Group is pleased to announce that it has made a strategic investment in DLS Marine, the leading maritime asset valuation and appraisal firm in the United States. Established in 1968, DLS has assembled a technical staff of professionals comprised of the largest concentration of NAMS certified surveyors and ASA certified marine appraisers in the industry. DLS is headquartered in New Orleans, LA and has offices in Houston, TX, Tampa, FL, and Norfolk/Hampton Roads, VA.
“The combination of DLS and TMG is an ideal fit. The two firms have known each other for years and their respective cultures are aligned. Additionally, together the two firms provide one of the most comprehensive business and asset valuation practices in the United States, with approximately 50 valuation professionals providing a breadth of capabilities and expertise supporting a broad range of client engagements. Together, the two firms have approximately 400 regular valuation clients” says Ryan Berry, Managing Director of The McLean Group’s Valuation Advisory Practice.
Ryan continues “often we have clients with fixed asset appraisal needs to go along with their business valuation requests and to be able to offer them both under one umbrella will streamline the approach and speed up the entire process.”
Harry Ward, President of DLS Marine said, “After having successfully worked with The McLean Group’s team of valuation advisors for several years it’s apparent that the combination of two firms together is a fantastic fit. Often we have clients who need business valuations or complex securities valuation services in addition to the asset appraisal services that we provide. To be able to offer all of these services directly is a clear differentiator in our markets.”
