What valuation services do you offer?

We can provide a formal report prepared on a bespoke basis depending on the firm, the purpose for the report and the complexity of the entity being valued or reviewed. The report will give our opinion as to the open market value of a firm and provide details of any recently concluded deals of a similar size and type. It will also include suggested strategies for exiting the business, which are always tailored to particular circumstances.

Thank you for this excellent report – huge amount to take in, but excellent thank you. L, Partner of law firm, April 2022
