Business Valuation

Effective Business Valuations

At its best, business is about more than making money. It can be a forum for creativity and even, as Steve Jobs urged, a way to follow your heart.

When certain situations arise, however, even a successful business needs to be valued. And when that happens, it's important to have skilled counsel to guide you through the valuation process.

At Bernstein & Feldman, P.A., we provide sophisticated and effective legal services to clients who need business valuations to complete their transactions. Based in the Annapolis area, our service area extends to Washington, D.C., and throughout Maryland.

What Type Of Transaction Are You Involved In?

Business valuation can get pretty complicated. In part, there are multiple methods that can be used, including asset-based valuation and the earnings multiplier method. You can also look to arrive at market value by comparing the business to others.

Our firm has the knowledge of legal, financial and business issues to identify the appropriate method and apply it to you r particular circumstances. We are large enough to offer a full range of resources for complex evaluations, yet small enough to offer individualized services customized to your needs and goals.

We know there are several different reasons why you need a valuation.

  • Purchase or sale of a business
  • Dissolution of a business
  • Restructuring or acquisition

A valuation may also be needed in order to put a business succession plan in place. T his may be necessary, for example, to transfer shares in a family business as part of an estate plan.

Business valuation is also sometimes required when dividing property in a divorce.
