Business Valuation

If you’re buying or selling a business, doing succession or estate planning, or involved in litigation, having an accurate, trustworthy assessment of value is critical.

We develop a thorough understanding of your business and industry to ensure our valuation is not only accurate, but also can withstand close scrutiny from federal and state courts, arbitrators, trustees, the Internal Revenue Service, and other regulatory bodies. Our team members are often called upon to provide expert witness testimony when valuation matters are part of a legal dispute.
