Business Valuation and Litigation Support
The valuation of a closely held business or other business interest is critical in divorce proceedings, gifting programs, estate valuation and shareholder disputes. It also assists in the evaluation of the reasonableness of a purchase or sale offer for a business.
Our business valuation team will work with you to develop an accurate picture of the true value of a business and to help you understand the methods used to determine that value. We take into consideration the competition in your marketplace, the financial condition of the business, the economic outlook for the industry as well as current staff and legal obligations. The end result of this process is a concise, well-researched opinion of the value of the business.
