Mr. Duratti is a long-time leader at MFA and currently serves as a partner within both the Firm's Valuation and Investment Banking Practices, through which he works as part of a team assisting clients in the sale of their company by means of a merger, consolidation, recapitalization, business combination, reorganization or other related transaction.

For more than 20 years, Bill has been providing financial advisory, business valuation and transaction-related services to companies and owners considering the sale of a business as well as buyers for whom it is imperative to understand the earnings, tax and strategic significance of an acquisition. He is well regarded for his profound understanding of the economic model of business and, as a result, often serves as an integral part of client merger and acquisition teams, complementing and enhancing the efforts of owners, management, legal counsel and investment bankers. Beyond providing an accurate opinion of value, Bill helps clients to achieve a level of comfort and understanding of the big picture as well as the tax and financial reporting implications of a potential deal.
