Determining the value of a privately held business is often one of the most paramount financial issues in a dispute. We provide business valuations prepared by an experienced CPA and credentialed business valuation professional. We typically work on behalf of one side in a dispute, but also can serve as a neutral business valuation expert.  Our team is experienced in providing valuation analysis in high stakes situations and is ready to defend our work before the opposition and the Court.
