Brett Cenkus, Principal

Brett A. Cenkus, Esq.


Brett is a Harvard Law graduate and an experienced M&A advisor. Most M&A advisors have always only been advisors. Brett’s 19+ years of experience working on all sides of the M&A table – as a buyer, seller, M&A advisor to buyers and sellers, and M&A attorney to buyers and sellers – gives him a broad perspective on how to get deals done.

Brett worked as a “deal guy” for a publicly-traded media company where his job was to source, negotiate and close acquisitions. This work gives him perspective on what buyers are looking for when they acquire a company.

Brett also sold his own company, Paragon Residential Mortgage, to Bridge Investments, a regional mortgage bank. So, he knows what’s it like to be in your shoes.

On the law side, he worked on mergers and acquisitions for one of the most prestigious M&A law firms recognized globally, Skadden Arps. Brett also runs Cenkus Law, a Texas-based law firm.
