Eton's unparalleled service and expertise can deliver the valuation precision you or your business need

We are focused.

We are experts at all types of valuations. We provide comprehensive, audit-defensible valuation services and advice to help privately held firms fulfill their regulatory and tax requirements. As an independent valuation provider without competing business lines, our work will withstand any safe harbor challenges.

We take a hands-on approach.

Our valuation reports are more than just a spreadsheet. Every engagement is performed by our team of highly trained lawyers, accountants, and Chartered Financial Analysts. Every client works with a dedicated relationship manager who takes the time to understand their unique challenges. And every valuation is customized to each client’s unique financial situation.

We get it right the first time.

We have thousands of valuations under our belt. Like most of the leading law, accounting and audit firms who call on us to help their clients, you can be confident in the valuations we deliver. Our reports offer the accuracy clients need to mitigate the risks of managing a private enterprise—and we produce them quickly and at a competitive price.
