Business Valuation & Disputes
Business Valuation is one of the most important phases in the purchase, sale, or maintenance protocols in managing a small business.

Personal valuations tend to be skewed by emotional metaphysical attributes like “elbow grease” and “tender love and care.” The skilled Business & Corporate Law team at Antonoplos & Associates can help you navigate the delicate field of business valuation to achieve an optimal result.

- Income Approach: Relies on the potential income of the company. When using the Income Approach, the incomes and expenses need to be adjusted to reflect normal business expenditures. Excessive compensations such as luxury cars would be added back to the value of the company.
