C&N Closes Significant Deal for Prominent Central Coast Insurance Firm

 

Carmel & Naccasha LLP attorneys recently facilitated the integration of a highly regarded employee benefits agency and brokerage on the Central Coast with the strength and resources of a leading global insurance brokerage. Here’s what the owner of the agency had to say once the deal was completed:

“It has been an exciting time at my company with a recent transition and merger. We could not have done it without the expert assistance of Carmel & Naccasha. All of their people, especially Ziyad Naccasha, worked tirelessly to bring our transaction to conclusion in a timely manner. It was not unusual to get an email from them at 10 pm, still working on our behalf. They concluded our transaction in 12 days while normally this type of thing would have taken months. Top-notch service, expert advice, working on our behalf, ethical proceedings, polite and thorough….what more could you want from your professional team?”

-Connie Framberger
