The Farber Difference

Business challenges and opportunities often have multiple causes and potential outcomes. While our roots are in business distress advisory, we understand that exceptional results require comprehensive solutions and a holistic approach.

That’s why, during our more than 40 years in business, we’ve expanded our services to include not only restructuring and finance, but also human capital and consulting services.

Our professionals and the diversity of our services allow us to deliver human-centred, creative solutions to our clients’ multi-faceted opportunities and challenges. We are driven to help people and organizations solve their complex problems—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.
