Valuations

Drawing on experience and a range of research resources, we value businesses, shareholdings and intellectual property to facilitate dispute resolution in both personal and commercial matters.

Share and business valuations

We have extensive experience of providing advice and expert evidence to companies, partnerships and individuals on valuations in the context of acquisitions, disposals, mergers and restructuring proposals across a wide range of industries.

Approach

We believe that valuations are not the result of a mechanical process alone. We adopt a variety of methodologies and techniques in deriving a valuation and draw upon our experience to give our clients quality valuation advice.  We pride ourselves on being able to offer a high level of adaptability, flexibility and innovation to ensure each valuation is bespoke and fitting to the facts.

Research

As well as our experience of undertaking valuations we request relevant information from the business in relation to its historic and current financial performance and future prospects.  We undertake research into the industry and/or markets in which the business operates.  Our methodology includes an assessment of appropriate valuation methodologies, a review of comparable transactions and multiples and using more than one valuation approach to double check the overall valuation.
