Valuing Intangible Assets

Front Cover
The valuation process is a technical one. As partnerships (personal and professional) are purchased, sold, divided or dissolved, valuation experts are called upon to provide and accounting for assets. While valuing tangible assets (building and other capital) offers quantifiable measurements, the processes and approaches for valuing intangible (services) offers unique challenges. The authors have developed the first comprehensive guide on how to value intangibles based on their expertise and experience in this valuation specialty.
