How are Solicitors' Practices Valued?

business and company valuation
There are reported to be some 9,000 or so firms with five partners or less and with the average age of equity owners approaching sixty years or more. As there now appears to be too many solicitors' practices serving a growing but changing market, predictions are that the numbers of solicitors will decline. However, most of these firms have no succession planning or exit strategies.

To value a firm, a simple multiple of net profit can be too vague an approach. Key to the value of goodwill is the likelihood of repeat - and importantly, transferable - business.

There are buyers out there and an increasing appetite, on both sides, for mergers and acquisitions. The big question is, therefore, how much is the law firm worth?

R A Valuation Services Limited specialises in providing valuations for Solicitor firms in the UK and Europe for the purpose of incorporation, business sale and purchase, partnership or shareholder change, litigation, matrimonial and legal separation, tax settlements, borrowings and business development.

In addition, R A undertake instructions for Solicitor firms - on behalf of their clients - when an independent assessment of business value is required, such as during matrimonial and legal separation.
