Business valuation has become an increasingly common tool for business owners as a way to maximize the value and minimize the risk of complex business transactions, such as mergers or acquisitions, IPOs, reorganizations, split-ups, spin-offs, buy/sell agreements or succession planning. When litigation is involved, business valuation can be a useful part of the dispute resolution process.
