The Ostermueller Group and its affiliates work hand-in-hand with attorneys and other litigation support personnel to effectively communicate our valuation and economic damage opinions to clients, judges and juries.
The Ostermueller Group is retained to provide independent valuation opinions for many purposes. We have clients of varying sizes and legal definitions/forms. Our valuation subjects often are located in diverse and multiple locations and operate in many different industries and professions.
Very often, when we are called-in to provide our fraud/forensic–related services, it is an inadvertent discovery or simply an intuitive suspicion or concern by management that fraudulent activity is taking place. In some cases it is an employee’s or other whistle blower’s report that first alerts management.
The Ostermueller Group provides the following services to assist private company owners/executives to prepare for and defend against reasonableness challenges by the IRS, minority shareholders and others.
The Ostermueller Group has in-depth experience in business brokerage and other buy-sell transaction settings, and has provided independent valuations and hypothetical value indication consulting to both sellers of existing businesses and investors considering the purchase of a business.
