Larry Kaplan, the founder and Managing Director of CSG Partners, commented on the rankings, "Despite the continuing uncertainties in the US economy, our firm experienced significant growth and closed another record year in 2010. Our transaction teams worked around-the-clock to support the needs of our clients, particularly in the fourth quarter. Given our firm's deal flow thus far, we expect 2011 to be another record year."

CSG Partners has built a reputation of having the nation's preeminent ESOP investment banking practice. The firm has quickly expanded its client base on a national scale. In 2010, CSG Partners closed transactions in California, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.


CSG Partners, LLC is a fast-growing, boutique investment bank specializing in ESOPs, mergers and acquisitions, and capital advisory services for middle-market companies. CSG Partners has closed over 80 ESOP transactions for companies with an aggregate value exceeding $5 billion, for companies ranging in value from $10 million to $500 million.
