Clients need valuations for a variety of reasons including litigation, financial reporting, tax and commercial transactions. Our valuations team is on hand to deliver high quality, reasoned advice for a wide range of UK and international clients.

Valuations


Our team prepares a wide range of valuations for a variety of different purposes. We help clients with the valuation aspects of their financial reporting, including the valuation of complex financial instruments, shares and intangible assets as well as purchase price allocation following a transaction. Our work also forms part of litigation cases, where we provide valuation support to a legal team or act as an independent expert.
