ESF Advisory has an unmatched appetite for challenge – we thrive on solving the unsolvable.

From professional sports teams to the most recognized independent private schools in the country, ESF creates innovative, cutting edge programs and experiences that connect emotionally with people of all ages.


ESF specializes in challenging situations that require analytical, operational, industry, and structuring expertise

Program & Financial Restructuring

ESF provides all-inclusive support in high-complexity turnaround, distressed, and underperforming situations, with an approach that generates optimal outcomes.

Mergers & Acquisitions

ESF Advisory provides robust and innovative leadership on clients’ complex acquisition, merger, business separation, and defense initiatives.

Crisis & Issues Management

ESF Advisory helps our clients understand the difference between a crisis and an issue-and what is required for managing both. Unfortunately, many institutions, organizations and professionals don’t yet know the difference, and therefore suffer unnecessary consequences when presented with an issue, particularly on social media.
