Most business owners today often require an independent valuation of either the shares or assets of their business. Complex Laws, new types of securities, and innovative ways of structuring organizations can often complicate the simple question: “How much is it really worth?”

There are many instances when an independent, objective and accurate assessment of a company’s value is required.

  • Buy and Sell of Business – owners, private equity firms and investment funds
  • Merger and Acquisition (M&A)
  • Shareholder and Business Disputes
  • Economic Loss – Divorce and Personal Injury Matters
  • Taxation – Re-organisations, Estate Freeze and set up of Trust
  • Business Transition and Succession Planning
  • Forensic and Litigation Support


Some say a company is worth exactly what another person is willing to pay. Or is it? How about future value? Or earnings and income? Or goodwill? How do you arrive at that magic number, fairly? More importantly, who best to provide that assessment? An accountant? A lawyer ? The neighbour who sold their business? Who can provide that certainty?
