Kotzin Valuation Partners offers experience with companies in every major economic sector


In the Sarbanes-Oxley era, using internal accountants to provide non-audit valuation services is no longer an option for many companies. As a consequence, a growing number of financial executives in Arizona, Nevada and many other states are turning to Kotzin Valuation Partners for a thorough, independent and responsive valuation, and for added value to a required service.

As the largest, most credentialed independent business valuation firm in Arizona, Kotzin Valuation Partners has a deep understanding of the regulatory environment imposed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We also understand the requirements of your auditor.
