How much is your business worth? At what price could it be sold? What percentage should you give up to bring in new investors? Is the purchase worth the price tag?
Transaction Advisory Services
Considerations around transactions – buying, selling, expanding or restructuring – are major considerations, and oftentimes more questions arise after making your initiative decision to buy (or sell, or expand, or restructure…)
Fraud Risk Management
You don’t want to think it can happen to you. You want to believe you can trust your employees, colleagues, clients and suppliers. But sometimes it’s something a business owner has to face: Fraud.
Litigation Support and Dispute Resolution
Complex matters involving serious disputes is a major distraction to your business and could cost you (potentially) millions of dollars in lost profits.
