Non-Litigation Support

Non-litigation Consulting Services

Business conditions analyses including business valuations and economic impact studies have been undertaken relative to real estate development, financial institution markets, as well as private and public sector entities.

Economic Impact Studies:

Raffa Consulting Economists has undertaken economic impact studies in matters involving both private and public sector entities. Economic impact studies that have been undertaken include EB-5 Immigration Applications, sporting events, a private school, and a major league sports franchise.

Business Valuation:

The process of valuing a “going-concern” business entity is more than just simply applying a discount rate to a projected cash flow. The relative strength of any business valuation comes from whether or not the appraiser has a firm understanding of both the subject company, and the underlying economic conditions within which that company operates. The team of experienced economists at RCE know the questions to ask, and the data to gather in order to make the right determination of value. As a result, our business valuation services provide clients with an accurate and defendable statement of value, which can then be used for anything from a pre-sale “reality” check, to an IRS filing, or even for use in a Court of Law. Also, in the event that trial testimony is needed, our economists have experience successfully going to trial and defending our measurements in an adversarial proceeding.
