B. Riley Financial Inc., a provider of business advisory and financial services, has bought the corporate division of Farber Group, a Toronto-based restructuring and business advisory firm.

Farber offers corporate restructuring and related advisory services, M&A corporate finance, wealth management, interim management and executive search, human capital advisory, organizational and talent development and related consulting services to corporate clients, entrepreneurs, law firms, lenders, private equity firms, regulators and investors across Canada. Farber’s corporate division will become part of B. Riley Advisory Services.

“This combination catapults our firm into a class of its own,” comments Gary Lifman, senior managing director at Farber. “Together, our combined resources and scale enable us to offer our clients greater expertise, experience, and industry specialization. Our established trust, aligned cultures, and shared values allow us to seamlessly collaborate to provide greater value to our stakeholders. As part of B. Riley, our focus remains dedicated to providing the same superior service our clients have known for years.”

Arnall Golden Gregory LLP acted as legal advisor to B. Riley, and Goodmans LLP served as legal counsel to Farber.
