Choosing to grow a business entity through acquisition or to sell to a strategic or financial buyer is among the most important decisions that owners of private companies will make. We have extensive experience advising companies in media technology and financial services in crucial buy and sell decisions.


Finding appropriate sources of capital is critical for private companies. Lakewood Advisors maintains close working relationships with banks, private equity firms, family offices and business development companies that provide working capital and acquisition financing to our clients.

Our Story

Lakewood Advisors, LLC was formed in 2018 by experienced banker and media industry leader Ed Grebow to serve the specialized merger and acquisition and capital raising needs of media technology companies. A former President of Sony Electronics Broadcast Division, at the helm of LWA, Grebow and the LWA team quickly attracted the attention of Japanese media technology companies that needed expert help in accessing the American market and in evaluating acquisition opportunities in the United States. The scope of LWA’s activities broadened quickly to include US companies interested in business opportunities in Japan, TV sports companies, and financial technology companies. In recent years, LWA has expanded its expertise to include Japanese pharmaceutical and global space technology companies. Beyond traditional investment banking activities, LWA also assists clients in business development, marketing, and labor relations.

LWA is the choice of our global clients because of the personal attention they receive, LWA partners’ technical expertise, the assurance of confidentiality, and the senior relationships that LWA has with potential counterparties and financing sources.
