How Much is My Business Worth?

The question is difficult to answer and is important when the company’s value is at the center of current or potential litigation. In these circumstances, a valuation must not only be reliable, but the calculations and methodologies used must survive the scrutiny of courts, opposing counsel, and opposing experts.

You may need to determine the value of a business involved in litigation including:

  • Marital divorces
  • Divorces among business owners
  • Dissenting and oppressed shareholder statutory fair value actions
  • Breach of fiduciary duty allegations
  • Fraud allegations
  • IRS or department of revenue challenges
  • Breach of contract allegations
  • Disputed or ambiguous terms of purchase and sale agreements
  • Missing or incomplete financial data or information
