With more than $17 billion in transaction experience involving companies large and small in a variety of industries, we bring a fresh perspective to your valuation needs. Our real-world involvement is the art of valuation. To that art, we add science; our professionals have earned business appraisal designations from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the American Society of Appraisers, and the Institute of Business Appraisers.
Our valuation experts have extensive courtroom experience, and have testified about valuation matters in U.S. Tax Court, federal court, and a variety of local courts.
The Decosimo Advisory Services team can provide asset valuations for virtually any need.
