Attend a dso practice
transition seminar


Selling your practice to a DSO can be a complex and confusing process and can result in leaving money on the table if you are not aware of what to ask for and when to ask for it. We are teaming up with the 7 Pillars team to ensure you are educated and fully prepared for what to expect if you are going down this path. Attend our two-day DSO Transition Seminar to get all your questions answered and gain clarity on the process.

Our Unique 360-Degree Approach

At CWA, our practice transition approach starts by looking at the impact of the sale, taking into account often-overlooked factors like timing and any tax or financial implications. Our team of advisors take a true 360-degree view of every transition, from diving into why you’re thinking of selling to planning for life after you sell. We also look at current market and practice conditions to ensure you maximize the value of your practice.

What To Expect At A Seminar

Led by CWA & 7 Pillars’ top transition advisors, our DSO Transition Seminars span two full days, delivering in-depth information, insights, and training to help make the sale of your practice a success. Attendees leave with a workbook that helps bring the topics and tips covered at the seminar back home to their practice.

  • How to know if you’re personally ready to sell
  • How to know if your practice is ready to sell
  • Types of DSOs and private equity deals
  • Structure of the sale
  • Understanding your EBITDA
  • Timeline of a sale pre and post LOI
  • What a recap event could mean for you
  • How the current economy may affect your sale
  • Tax implications of the sale
  • Investment opportunities
  • Case studies of life post sale
