We’re pleased to offer strategic guidance in this complex terrain, easing the path for our clients.”

“This accolade is a joint effort of sorts,” continued Sondhelm. “It’s a testament to our devoted team, our supportive strategic partners, our clients who have invested their trust in us, and the broader community of investors and journalists who engage with unique investment opportunities.”

Sondhelm Partners grabbed 19.5% of the vote among nine firms in the Best Third-Party Marketing Firm category. The firm faced formidable competitors like Agecroft Partners, Boldwater Partners, Clearglass Capital Partners, Crawford Ventures, Eureka Capital Partners, First Avenue, PJT Park Hill, and The Far Hills Group.
