How Citrin Cooperman Can Help

While it’s a requirement that all divorcing parties disclose their assets and earnings in preparing for the financial termination of a marriage, there are often allegations of unreported assets and/or income. Similarly, when a family has diverging interests and the business needs to be broken up or sold, a forensic accountant is oftentimes the service provider that brings clarity to the issues. Our highly accredited team has the necessary forensic and industry knowledge to locate and quantify non-disclosed income streams and assets necessary in measuring the key components of the business and each party’s true economic income.

Our forensic and valuation professionals are highly regarded by the litigation and family law bar. Experienced in successfully conducting numerous private company forensic accounting investigations and valuations, judges rely on our objective opinions. We regularly testify as experts for valuing businesses and measurement of income and property for a number of jurisdictions, including New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Connecticut courts.
