I first met Sam during his time as partner of CP Partners in the late 1990's. When Sam left that partnership to establish SP Solutions in 2002, I immediately followed him as his client. Since then, Sam has been instrumental in advising me and my partners on all tax and business matters through the entire business lifecycle; from the establishment of our first venture, to the acquisition of several businesses, and finally to guiding us through a business sale process we are currently undertaking. I regularly reach out to Sam to gain his thoughts on issues of a strategic nature. His practical thinking, ability to think outside the square and easy to understand advice have contributed enormously to the success of our business.
