Commercial Bankruptcy

U.S. Bankruptcy Court in downtown Phoenix

Valuing a company in or on the verge of bankruptcy involves considerations that go beyond growth, risk and cash flow.

In bankruptcy, traditional valuation tools and methodologies may need to be adjusted – if they are applicable at all – so as not to overstate business value. Also, the standard-of-value terminology or premise-of-value decision may differ from traditional circumstances, and case law and other sources may provide clearer guidance than the Bankruptcy Code or state statutes.
Kotzin Valuation Partners helps attorneys and their clients meet the unique valuation needs of the bankruptcy environment.
In addition, with extensive bankruptcy, restructuring, reorganization and turnaround experience, our professionals provide valuable insight in addressing the needs of distressed businesses.
