Business Valuation & Litigation Support
The process of establishing the worth of a company requires a multi-disciplinary examination of the business, coupled with professional judgment that comes from training and experience. An accurate and defensible assessment of the value of a business involves the application of standards, formulas and pertinent financial, tax, economic and industry data.
The purpose of a valuation is critical to determining the standard of value applied to an asset, and values may differ sharply; a value for acquisition purposes will differ distinctly from—and require a different approach than—values for tax purposes, shareholder disputes, estate planning, divorce, liquidation or other purposes for which business valuations are needed.
Led by noted business valuation professional Michael Pendergast, the firm’s business valuation and litigation support team provides expert business valuations and in-person testimony in cases such as divorce, shareholder disputes and business acquisitions. In fact, Mike was in the first class in the state to be certified with the distinction of Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV), a credential conferred by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants on CPAs who demonstrate the skill, education and experience necessary to satisfy stringent requirements.
