A local consulting firm acquired a business that provides court-appointed receivership services for crisis management and dispute resolution.
Gantry said the acquisition will allow it to provide a full spectrum of business consultancy services to its clients.
Amicus went up for sale after the unexpected passing of founder and owner Dan Yeomans in August.
“We are deeply saddened by Dan’s sudden passing,” said Gantry co-founder and partner Tim Emmitt. “Our goal with the acquisition of Amicus is to continue his strong legacy of helping clients throughout Michigan, Indiana, the upper Midwest and beyond.”
Gantry will continue to provide receivership services under Amicus Management’s team and brand name through its offices in Forest Hills and Detroit.
“Strategically, Amicus is an ideal fit with Gantry’s current offerings,” said Gantry co-founder and partner Dave Distel. “It gives us a set of solutions for organizations in virtually any situation or lifecycle stage. We are uniquely positioned to help our clients achieve success in a rapidly changing business environment.”
Founded in 2020, Gantry provides custom solutions for middle-market companies, nonprofits, startups, and their attorneys and lenders. Practice areas include performance improvement, transaction support, mergers and acquisitions, turnaround/restructuring, interim/fractional management services and succession planning.
Amicus was founded in 1993 and offers court-appointed receivership services for crisis management and dispute resolution, including operating businesses, liquidations, shareholder disputes, divorce and other types of litigation. Amicus has been appointed to more than 700 receiverships and disbursed hundreds of millions of dollars to financial institutions, vendors, employees, taxing authorities and shareholders throughout the region.
