Business valuation is an increasingly central theme in many financial reporting, tax, and litigation matters.

In an ideal world, perfect transactional evidence between willing and knowledgeable buyers provides adequate evidence of business value. The reality is that such evidence is rarely available and conclusions of value must be derived through a delicate combination of analysis and objective professional judgment. In a world where value, at best, falls within a range and the perception of bias is undeniable, it is absolutely critical that opinions of value be prepared by knowledgeable and experienced professionals. Subjectivity invites scrutiny.

We possess the practical experience and business acumen needed to look behind the numbers at the industry-specific and subjective factors that drive value. We work closely with clients, auditors, and outside interests to develop objective valuation opinions.

Our opinions are designed to withstand the scrutiny of auditors, courts, taxing authorities, and other interested parties. We also provide credible, understandable expert testimony to judges, juries, and other fact finders. We assist a wide variety of interested parties concerning entities that range from small, closely held start-ups to large, multi-national corporations.
