Who We Serve


As a trusted business advisor to business owners, maybe your firm doesn't have the qualifications to perform business valuation and litigation support services, maybe it's just not your core competency, or maybe your firm just has a conflict of interest with respect to a specific valuation or litigation assignment. BV Advisors works with many national, regional and local CPA firms to assist your clients by providing professional business valuation and litigation support services.

Our goal is to help CPAs by providing independent and unbiased valuation and litigation support services to meet the needs of their clients.  From valuation issues in the areas of taxation, financial reporting, business transition (M&A) or litigation, we have the expertise and experience to help you assist your clients to meet their compliance or consulting objectives.
