Patrick Wilkins, Boss Industries Founder

“In performing estate planning, it became apparent to me that I needed a partner that would allow me to monetize a part of the business that I founded and have run for the past 26 years while still having the ability to participate in the new innovations that BOSS was bringing to market in the future. Strait Lane listened to our goals for BOSS and what we were looking for in a potential transaction and developed the perfect structure for us. For someone that had never been through a sale process, the Strait Lane group was not only very easy to work with during the process but more importantly has been a great partner since closing. They listen to and challenge us in ways that have been very helpful as we move to grow the business and I am extremely excited about the outcome and the continued future great prospects for BOSS.”
