“The team at Klaris, Thomson & Schroeder recently completed a business valuation analysis for us.  I was very happy with the results of their work.  There were some delicate issues involved and the KTS team worked very hard to be sensitive to those issues.  They only asked for information that they truly needed, and were very responsive to our requests.  Their high quality report was delivered on schedule as promised.  I would not hesitate to use them again in the future should the need arise, and have highly recommended them to others as well.”

“Why? Because KTS Valuation not only does an excellent and timely job, at a reasonable price, but their valuation reports are prepared in a manner which is logical and easy to follow for the most important readers out there, i.e., the judges and juries who will be making the ultimate determination whether the conclusions reached in the valuation report are correct.”

“I have worked with the team at Klaris, Thomson & Schroeder on over one hundred business valuations for estate planning clients over the past decade.  I have always been extremely happy with the results of their work.  Many times, our clients are under short deadlines, and I have always found the KTS team to be conscientious and diligent to meet those deadlines while providing top-notch, professional valuation reports.  Having worked with a number of business valuation firms over the years, I find that the KTS team delivers a high quality report every time.  Because KTS has performed a number of appraisals for the IRS, I feel confident that their work has credibility when submitted with my clients’ tax returns.  KTS is my “go-to” business appraisal firm, and I have recommended them highly to my clients and other attorneys on many occasions.
