Delivering Success: Creating a win-win acquisition scenario

Albert worked with a small Chinese company that was being acquired by a larger U.S. company. Because of language barriers, the owners were unsure of the transaction. He acted as a liaison between the two companies and was able to alleviate the fears of his client. By showing them the positive side of the arrangement and ensuring they got the best deal, he was able to advise his client into situation where both parties won.
