FIRST FINANCIAL RESOURCES – PREMIER FINANCIAL SERVICES WITH OVER 135 OFFICES 

FFR is considered by Wall Street and Main Street “shakers, movers” and M&A deal makers to be a savvy, innovative and a highly regarded tax strategy firm. Its client base includes some of America's wealthiest families, largest publicly and privately held corporations and largest privately held charitable foundations. At FFR we are strategic problem solvers for high net worth clients and public and privately-held businesses. Our expertise as “Deal Facilitators” utilizes our extensive M&A and investment and merchant banking contacts worldwide. These key high level sources enable us to help companies that need guidance with raising capital and attracting investor interest to boost the company's stock price. We are experts in making companies seeking capital, attractive to investors by implementing “makeover strategies.” We can help a potential acquisition candidate look more desirable to the institutional and investment community resulting in a higher price/earnings multiple. One of our corporate missions is to "bring to the table" and implement a “killer” tax strategy that is a "perfect fit" for you and your clients. Bottom line we aim to create a smooth transaction that is clean, neat, seamless and closes quickly ! FFR specializes in helping merger and acquisition firms, and investment and merchant bankers develop new clients and facilitate deals. We also significantly increase "deep pocket" individual and corporate investor's (angel, venture, bridge, mezzanine, and seed) net available funds for "deal" (project/venture opportunity) involvement. We can substantially reduce the tax exposure that occurs upon the liquidation of an asset (a taxable event after which "Uncle Sam" wants his significant share.)  Our prime directive in utilizing tax planning strategies is that although we "push the envelope", we never, ever cross over the line! We adhere to this corporate philosophy by retaining the "best legal and accounting tax minds" and we religiously follow their advice in implementing their tax strategies with your clients. FFR / Almont Group's tax strategy team (consisting of the country's finest tax attorneys, sharpest C.P.A. s and a top flight tax “guru” Dr. Harvey Altholtz, ) guides closely - held company owners, public companies and high net income (over $200,000 per year ) and /or high net worth individuals ($2-100 million + ) on how to restructure the way their assets are held and how income is classified. This eliminates a large portion of the income tax or capital gains tax liability associated with the sale of a business or other asset. As an added benefit, the proceeds of the transaction are removed from the client's estate; fully protected from future creditors and rendered “divorce proof” for generations. Each tax strategy and technique that we recommend has been opined by leading tax attorneys at prestigious nationally known and respected firms. First Financial Resources has long established strategic business relationships with the the Bank of America, Big Five accounting firm Deloitte Touche, and many other well known giants in the financial service industry.
