PRITCHETT is the firm that originally established M&A integration consulting as a specialized practice area. We wrote the first hardcover book on the topic, After the Merger: Managing the Shockwaves. We also authored the all-time M&A bestseller, The Employee Guide to Mergers and Acquisitions, plus many other merger-specific books and countless papers and articles. Our consultants also developed the Merger Integration Certification Workshop and have taught more than 30,000 managers how to run fast, value-focused integrations.

We're true specialists. Not general practitioners that dabble in M&A integration. Organizations come to us because of our focus and deep expertise.
