Business valuation and rights of minority shareholders

Assessment of suitability and appropriateness for companies and courts

The expertise of auditors or appraisers is required time and again in legal disputes concerning the assessment of severance payments, compensation payments or the estimation of a company value. This is because it is only with an independent business valuation that you, as a judge, can obtain a realistic picture and make a decision on this basis.

And even as an entrepreneur, you should arm yourself in advance with a business valuation carried out and checked by a public auditor before signing any business agreement or excluding any minority shareholders. This will help you avoid any unpleasant surprises later on.

Business valuation as the core competency of business studies requires comprehensive knowledge of markets, accounting and taxes as well as investment and financing. Our specialists are well informed on this broad spectrum of specifications with their specific requirements according to laws, jurisdiction and standards. They also have access to relevant databases and, on this basis, can determine or check the company value, independently and appropriately. This means you can be sure of the process stability and can rely on the results.
