We help family law lawyers to determine the quantum of net family property for equalization purposes by valuing each spouse's personal and business assets and liabilities (including tax and other disposition costs) at date of marriage and date of separation. As appropriate, our work includes the diligent tracing of property claimed to be excluded from equalization

We also quantify income available for child and spousal support purposes and identify income that may need to be imputed to a spouse, such as income from diverted underutilized assets, from favourable tax rates or arising from spouse's underemployment, among others.

Our reports are clear and objective, meet the hightest professional standards and are based on evidence independently obtained and carefully documented.

We can also critique opposing expert's report and provide witness testimony in court.

Our experts are trained in collaborative family law principles and can assist cohabiting parties to understand both the current and future financial impact of entering into a Cohabitation Agreement. We assist legal counsel by ensuring valuations of business and personal assets on the day the Cohabitation Agreement is signed and fair, and the definitions of future value and income are comprehensive and consistent.


Working with tax specialists, we help personal and corporate clients with complex corporate reorganizations by expertly valuing business assets and liabilities.





We provide a full range of services related to shareholder agreement and buyouts, which includes the valuation of businesses, minority interest appraisals, and forensic investigations.

If needed, we can provide expert witness testimony in the case of shareholder disputes, or critique an opposing expert report. Our credible work will help you minimize risks and preempt costly litigation proceedings.
