Newly formed San Francisco-based investment banking boutique. Founders are former group heads from bulge-bracket investment banks. Firm is starting business March 1. Firm will offer advisory services (M&A buyside/sellside, fairness opinions, IPO advisory, debt/equity private placements).

Any ideas?

Wow, this firm looks legit.

Just another sign that the industry may be shifting away from the BB business model.

Yes, it is Dean Bradley Osborne. Henkel sent out a posting for them more than a month ago. Perhaps they're kicking off their recruiting in earnest now.

And when the Henkel email went out, the firm was known just as Dean Bradley. I guess Nicholas Osborne jumped aboard later.

Very impressive that they were already hired so soon for such a high profile engagement.

Has anyone heard updates on interviews for the NYC office?

not that there is anything wrong with this firm, but man they look WASPy

Not to mention, they have the cheesiest website. The pictures seem very out of place.

agree w cheezy website

those guys look like dweebs, not sure i'd want to work for them too stiff of an environment vs young / hungry

Yep, it's the Morgan Stanley guys in my guess. I would expect big things from these guys. Especially given that it's a startup, you would probably have the kind of access to these three that even senior associates / junior VPs back at MS hoped for.
