Business valuations may be necessary for a variety of reasons. With a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of appraisal ethics, principles and concepts, we work with the client to refine the parameters of the valuation assignment to ensure the result will be relevant.
We have performed business valuations in the following contexts:
- Internal Evaluation
- Business and Contract Disputes
- Shareholder Disputes
- Bankruptcy-related Litigation
- Damages & Lost Profits Analysis
Most often, we prepare valuations for companies in the following industries:
- Oilfield Services
- Building Contractors
- Family limited partnerships
- Solvency of exploration and production companies
- Architectural copyright
- Legal services
While a well documented and properly supported appraisal report may preclude the need for litigation, we are well versed in deposition and courtroom procedures and when necessary, are able to present and defend our research and appraisal methodology.
A particularly valuable use of our skills arises when a client seeks to resolve a value dispute and we help define the engagement so the resulting report will best serve the needs of its users and facilitate resolution of the value dispute.
