Our Services

Knowing the economic value of your business is important for short-term and long-term financial planning. Whether your needs include developing an exit strategy, tax planning or compliance, financial reporting, resolving a dispute, or contemplating an acquisition, we help by objectively valuing your business and preparing you for the future. Our credentialed professionals have earned designations from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the American Society of Appraisers, and the CFA Institute. Our business valuation team has a working relationship with the largest accounting firms to provide supportable fair value conclusions in accordance with best practices and industry standards. In addition, several team members have extensive courtroom experience and have testified on valuation matters in U.S. Tax Court, federal court, and other jurisdictions.
