C Lanclos is from the small Cajun town of Opelousas, Louisiana.  He moved to New York City during the 1980's and received his business degree from Bernard Baruch College. While in New York, C was trained to source acquisition targets and negotiate deals under one of the most influential power brokers in the world, Mr. Larry Lovett. C trained behind the scenes on how to bring billions of dollars' worth of national and international off-market targets to the table.

3 Basics Steps To His Success


Many clients have a difficult time with confidentiality due to employees, competitors and customer concerns over post acquisition. C approaches all of his transactions with the utmost level of confidentiality. From the due diligence process, all the way to the closing of it, he will make every attempt to keep the transaction process as confidential as possible. He understands to be competitive clients demand such an arrangement.


There are many steps to any M&A transaction which leads to many deals falling apart. However, when C agrees to work with a client he will work with only  "one client" at a time. He believes in 100% attention to all of his clients, small and large alike. Also, if needed, he will personally oversee the assembly of a team to make the transaction as smooth as possible.   


C has worked with exclusive acquiring clients in the private equity industry, the venture capital field, the family office space and with UHNWI. His target range for most acquisitions is $20MM - $500MM. Target evaluations can occur within weeks of an introduction, where little time is demanded on the seller's end, with no business interruption. 

Being an exclusive representative for his clients means that C allocates all of his services to "one" client at a time. He feels that this level of personal service to representation is warranted considering the many different elements to the process. Knowing that the auctioning platform attracts many financial and strategic buyers, C attempts to bypass this very competitive process and position his exclusive clients to be a top acquiring candidate for "off-market" targets.
