We now have a new name, Upton Financial Group.  Walt Lipski and David Ryan have joined forces under Upton Financial Group and now have offices in Scottsdale, AZ and Santa Rosa, CA to better serve business owners and families whose companies have annual revenues of between $5 - $75 million.


The principals of Upton Financial Group, Walt Lipski and David Ryan have collaborated on privately held business transitions and sale transactions for over 19 years, and are now combining their experience, expertise and skills under one roof to offer business advisory and merger & acquisition representation to entrepreneurs though out Arizona and California and the neighboring western states.


We are focused on providing solutions and options surrounding business transitions that are often challenging for business owners, their families and their advisors. These include:


• Selling a business 

• Creating significant liquidity in a privately held company 

• Funding growth or the buyout of existing partners 

• Retirement planning strategies
