About Corporate Valuation Advisors

Corporate Valuation Advisors was founded with offices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1988 when certain individuals including current Managing Directors Larry Knauf, Rich Mills, and Jim Volkman joined together as founding shareholders.  Dennis Ingles joined shortly thereafter to oversee the development of the property tax group of CVA which they opened with initial offices in Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Chicago.  Together they saw a clear opportunity to combine their experience and expertise with a significantly improved level of client service and responsiveness. This formula has been the cornerstone of CVA’s success over the years. The best evidence to gauge our level of execution on the success of our formula lies in the long-term relationships and continued service to many of America’s leading corporations, law firms, and private equity firms and the referrals we receive from them and many of the top accounting firms and their auditors.

We have worked with CVA since 2006 and have been delighted with the services they have performed for us over the years. CVA has always been responsive to our needs in providing high quality work. We have found that CVA’s service does not end when they deliver the product, but continues long after when questions arise.

While there are many choices out there, CVA has been my gold standard for M&A valuation and corporate finance services for more than 25 years. They are dedicated business partners that provide exceptional value to their clients. Would you accept anything less?
Lou D., Sr. Tax Executive, Choice Hotels
After several years of just “thinking” about appealing our property taxes, we finally did so. In the span of just two short years, we have saved over $50,000 in property taxes as a result of hiring CVA. We will save an additional $50,000 over the next two years and expect in excess of $100,000 in total tax savings over a four year period thanks to CVA. We regret not acting sooner.

Valuation Experience

Our enterprise, equity, tangible and intangible asset value opinions have been relied upon to resolve disputes with the Internal Revenue Service and the Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition, we have provided expert testimony on valuation matters in state and federal courts and before arbitration bodies. In performing our property tax appeal services, we regularly advance our valuation appeals through property tax appeal boards and state tax commissions.

Yes, we have built our reputation by demonstrating our expertise.  Our reputation has also been built on our continuing recognition that value impacts tax and financial reporting requirements, that tax and financial reporting requirements are deadline-oriented and that client personnel have placed their trust and confidence in our firm to not only meet their deadlines, but also to provide a work product which will pass the scrutiny of their auditors and other review authorities.

This recognition existed when Corporate Valuation Advisors, Inc. was formed back in the 1980’s and remains intact today as we continue to believe that adherence to sound expert analysis and timely service are the best means to achieve customer satisfaction.
