Abacus Finance: Streamlined Legal Services Enable a Client’s Competitive Advantage

Abacus Finance was founded in 2011 by experienced commercial financiers with a unique vision. They sought to finance an under-served but important and growing group of borrowers – lower-to-middle market pioneer enterprises backed by family capital or private equity sponsors.
