About: About
“I’ve worked with Ed Finch and FHL for over 30 years. This transaction made great sense but had numerous complex financial, accounting, legal, and tax aspects. Without the guidance of FHL, don’t think we would have achieved the outstanding result we did and may not have even done the transaction.”

Ken Adams, Founder and CEO of Southern Cal Transport
