How Citrin Cooperman Can Help

We take a unique, multi-disciplinary approach to our practice, and our skill set is versatile. We believe that our litigation background enables us to work from a more defensible mindset and create reports that consistently withstand the most intense scrutiny from the IRS, auditors, judges, and opposing counsel.  As a result, we are often called to testify in court as expert witnesses throughout the United States. Whether it is a purchase price allocation prepared in accordance with ASC 805, a valuation that meets the IRS’s Adequate Disclosure Requirements or a litigation worthy valuation we provide the comfort of a defensible and reliable analysis.

We conduct valuations of the following:

  • Operating businesses
  • Purchase Price Allocations and related intangibles
  • Early-stage companies
  • Common and preferred stock, options, warrants, rights, and other derivatives
  • Carried interests, profit interests, stock appreciation rights (SARS), restricted stock units (RSUs), and phantom stock
  • General and limited partnership interests
  • Intellectual property such as patents, copyrights, and trade names/marks/secrets
  • Intangible assets such as contracts, customer relationships, core technologies, software, and non-compete agreements
  • Royalty assets such as rights and licenses, including music catalogs
