Forensic & Valuation

We can help you achieve a successful outcome.

Organizations and individuals face constant pressure to reduce risks and navigate crises. We’re here to help you address these challenges head-on.

Forensic Accounting & Litigation Support

Our forensic accountants and litigation specialists look into and beyond the numbers. We can untangle complex financial disputes and accounting investigations for you.

We work side-by-side with some of the most well-respected law firms in the region on matters including:

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Estate, trust, and marital disputes
  • Breach of contract and business torts
  • Business interruption
  • Employment disputes
  • Post-acquisition disputes
  • Employee embezzlement investigations
  • Fraudulent financial reporting investigations

So whether you need someone to quantify economic damages, such as in a lost profits case or a wrongful termination suit, trace assets in a hotly contested divorce, resolve an earn-out dispute, or investigate a misappropriation or other accounting irregularity, our professionals are here to help.

Valuations

We assist middle-market companies, entrepreneurs, private equity groups, investors, lenders, and attorneys with complex valuation projects in the following areas:

  • Financial reporting and intangible assets
  • Stock options and incentive plans
  • Estate and trust
  • Disputes and litigation
  • Complex securities
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Exit planning
  • Tax compliance

Valuations involve more than simple number crunching. We don’t just dabble in this field—day in and day out, our team delivers solid conclusions supported by rigorous analysis and informed judgment.

Our valuation reports are designed to withstand intense scrutiny—from the IRS in a tax compliance setting, auditors in a financial reporting setting, or cross-examination in the courtroom.
