Ewing Bemiss & Co. was founded in 1992 to offer a higher level of investment banking service. The founding partners strongly believed that the middle market needed an independent investment banking firm that offered both highly effective services and a high degree of customization and flexibility to properly serve the unique needs of middle market clients.
Today, with offices in Richmond, VA and New York, NY, Ewing Bemiss is an internationally recognized middle market investment banking firm. We have closed hundreds of transactions and earned a reputation for providing sound, expert advice backed by absolute integrity and an unwavering commitment to delivering outstanding results to our clients. We have the scale and resources to handle very large transactions, but we have maintained our focus on providing superior personal service and individual attention to every client regardless of the size of the business or transaction.
A Focus on the Middle Market
Our exclusive focus on the middle market has allowed us to remain focused on what we do best. We have consistently succeeded in providing to the middle market the same level of expert strategic advice and professional transaction execution that are generally only available to significantly larger companies.
Our transactions typically range in value from $10 million to $250 million, and regardless of the size of the client or the size of the transaction, each project receives the same high level of senior banker attention and firm-wide effort.
Experts in Private Strategic Transactions
We specialize in private strategic transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, private placements and strategic advisory services. Our particular expertise is in developing a thorough understanding of each client’s strategic needs and personal objectives, and in designing the most efficient and effective possible approach to achieving its strategic and financial objectives. We have recommended and managed successful sale processes ranging from exclusive negotiations with a single buyer to auctions involving contact with hundreds of potential buyers or investors.
Experienced Investment Banking Professionals
Because each transaction presents its own challenges, some predictable and some unforeseen, it is crucial to do business with a firm that knows how to navigate a complex and challenging process. Our senior professionals average more than 20 years’ investment banking experience, including tenure with many of the nation’s leading investment banks. Our wide-ranging, collective experience, combined with individual intelligence and insight, means our clients are assured of getting the results they want and need – with a minimum of disruption to their businesses.
Expertise in a Broad Range of Industries
We have completed sale, merger, acquisition and financing transactions in a wide range of industries. In certain key market sectors, we maintain a particularly high level of expertise through proactive market research and on-going contact with strategic and financial buyers and investors.

High Service Orientation
We recognize that strategic transactions can be among the most significant events in our clients’ business careers. Whether our client is a closely held business raising equity capital to accelerate growth or a private equity group seeking to divest a portfolio company, no detail is unimportant. This is why we work tenaciously to deliver the valuation, timing and results our clients expect and deserve. Regardless of its size or complexity, each and every engagement gets a consistent, high level of service from us. One or more of our senior professionals is actively involved in every step of each transaction, from start to finish. Ewing Bemiss has built its business and its reputation by retaining an absolute commitment to this philosophy.
Integrity and Fairness
Above all, we believe the key to our success is our dedication to the highest ethical standards. From our inception, we have built our business and our reputation on the twin foundations of integrity and fairness. Our relationships with our clients and with every investor or buyer with whom we come in contact are grounded in our commitment to these core principles.
