Valuations

You know your business’ worth – our Valuations team gathers the data and delivers the insights to demonstrate its value - for deals, exit plans or disputes.

Whether you are buying or selling, building a succession plan or dealing with a legal dispute, business valuations provided by our Chartered Business Valuators and Accredited Appraisers are essential for assessing the true value of a business. An accurate business valuation is especially important when undertaking a merger, acquisition or divestiture transaction, to ensure you maximize the value of your deal and obtain the best price possible. Finally, our valuators, economists, statisticians, computer forensic specialists and forensic accountants deliver the support you need throughout any legal proceeding, gathering data and providing expert testimony that withstands even the highest scrutiny of the courts.
