Business Valuation

All of our business valuations conform to the standards promulgated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA) and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Our staff is highly qualified in finance, accounting and hold numerous professional designations in the valuation discipline.

  • A Complete Valuation will provide an unambiguous indication of value and includes an in-depth analysis of the subject company, its industry, financial condition, earning capacity and the national and local economy. It is the recommended choice for all valuations that may be scrutinized in litigation.

 

  • A Limited Valuation is less than the complete valuation in that certain procedures required for a complete valuation are not performed. A Limited Valuation can be very helpful to attorneys to get a possible range of value or to assist in determining if a complete valuation is cost beneficial. Limited valuations are less expensive and are performed more expeditiously.

 

  • A Review Valuation comments on the overall assumptions, methodologies and procedures employed by an opposing expert. In some cases, we are asked to provide alternative value conclusions when a flawed assumption or inappropriate methodology is corrected. Many attorneys find this service extremely useful in settlement negotiations.

We also have been engaged in several insurance related cases to determine the lost earnings for business interruption insurance purposes.
