Our Consulting & Deals Practice:

Our extensive selection of services provides business with the value they’re looking for. Our Consulting and Deals practices provide advice and assistance based on our financial, analytical and business process skills to enhance the performance of companies of all sizes. Whether it’s a proactive review of a client’s operations to improve performance or a valuation on a multi-million dollar, cross-border transaction, our Advisory Services professionals can help. Our clients recognize our ability to draw on our national and international network of professionals to put feet on the ground and deliver fast, proven results.

The Opportunity: Senior Associate, Valuations, Modelling and Disputes

Valuations are performed for a variety of purposes, including transaction pricing, regulatory and financial reporting, income tax or estate planning and strategic decision making. Some of our key valuation services include business valuations, intellectual property valuations, fairness opinions, financial modelling and purchase price allocations. Our clients come to us to help them understand the value of their business and its components.

Dispute analysis includes shareholders’ dispute, the provision of loss quantification estimates and financial analysis to a broad base of clients including lawyers, large corporations and insurance companies. Services are typically provided either in the context of a business dispute or litigation matter. Our clients use our services when they require a rigorous, independent financial assessment and, at times, expert testimony in court.

As a member of the Valuations, Modelling and Disputes (“VMD”) team, you will contribute to our client’s business decision process. Using skill sets relevant to both valuation and dispute related services, your contribution will involve the following:

  • Conduct financial research into industry and general economic conditions, valuation multiples for relevant public companies and precedent transactions;
