Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co. is regularly retained to provide expert business valuation analyses of private and public companies. Building a solid valuation that will withstand rigorous scrutiny is not a matter of just adding up the numbers. It starts with understanding the specific industry. We know, because our team members have collectively completed hundreds of valuations across a wide variety of sectors. To arrive at the right conclusion, you have to properly estimate the company’s long-term prospects using sound methodology and approaches that employ the most up-to-date research tools. That’s the same whether you are dealing with a commercial dispute, a shareholder or partnership dispute, a restructuring proceeding, merger, acquisition or regulatory filing. We’ve got this one covered. That’s why law firms, corporations, government agencies and business people turn to us time and again.
Accredited training is just the beginning that lays the foundation for excellence, and when it comes to credentials our professionals have them. Our valuation team consists of eight designated Chartered Business Valuators (CBVs). Each has supplemental designations as Chartered Professional Accountants (CPAs) and Investigative and Forensic Accountants (IFAs).
Experience is a great teacher and collectively our valuation team has over 150 years of it. What that tells you is we have worked on a wide array of mandates across many different industries and jurisdictions. Our team has the depth of knowledge to tailor the proper approach and methodology to each situation, allowing us to conduct effective research, and analyze and organize the information for maximum impact and efficiency. We prepare clear, concise reports and affidavits and provide authoritative expert witness testimony in court as well as in hearings and mediations.
When your valuator is testifying as your expert witness, you want to be certain that the work will meet the standards of the court and is independent and objective. You need findings that are presented in a clear and compelling manner. We deliver. Our team members have experience testifying as experts in the Federal Court of Canada as well as in the courts of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba and New Brunswick. We have also provided testimony in the United Kingdom and the British Virgin Islands courts and have testified as experts in domestic and international arbitrations.
