Business Valuation: What to Look for in an Expert

With an increase in M&A activity in recent months it may be wise to get a business valuation done so that if and when an opportunity arises you're ready to respond. But who should do the work for you and how in depth a report does your business need? Gilmore Jasion Mahler Partner Jeff Denning specializes in business valuation and says be aware that the IRS or a court of law will have some requirements when it comes to the valuation, and who does the work. He offers some ideas on how to go about choosing the right person for the job.

Who does a valuation for your business is one of several important questions as you begin to research the process.
