The Farber Difference

Farber has been in the business of supporting companies and individuals in distress for over 40 years. As we like to say, navigating through crisis is in our DNA.

Rooted in corporate restructuring, we’ve carefully and strategically expanded our range of solutions over the years to assist companies in all stages of the business life cycle. Whether you’re facing financial challenges, a business strategy turned on its head, or you have a planned or sudden leadership vacancy—Farber helps people solve complex challenges.

We recognize that people are the heart and soul of your organization. We also understand that people encounter setbacks both in the workplace and at home—with the pressures of each world delicately interwoven. After all, behind every tough decision you or your company makes, there’s a person, or group of people, experiencing a spectrum of emotions.

That’s why we strive to help you excel on a human level. From enhancing your emotional intelligence and leadership skills, managing change, elevating your executive and team performance; to realizing your professional and personal wealth management goals, we help nurture your emotional and financial well-being.

Farber helps to seamlessly bridge your two worlds, the personal and professional. Our team offers human-centred solutions—for the multi-faceted set of opportunities and challenges you face—while making a quantum difference in the lives of everyone we work with.

Our Culture

Farber’s distinct culture is built on a unique type of synergy—one that evolved from the relationship of the Firm’s founding partners Alan Farber and Gary Lifman. On any given day, every member of our team is working towards one common goal—the success of our clients—and we’ll go to great lengths to help one another succeed in this endeavour.

This collaborative focus is so strong it’s almost tangible. Our clients frequently ask how such a large group of people—from different backgrounds, functions and geographic locations—can work so seamlessly together. Finding stellar people and business partners is undoubtedly part of the secret—but it stems deeper than that.

Above all, our vision is to create an enduring and successful practice with our unique human-centred approach and culture. Our efforts don’t stop at helping our clients, we also empower our employees to have enriching careers while giving back to our communities.
