Our stability, integrity, technical leadership, and global capabilities make us a trusted advisor for clients worldwide, across a wide range of services, including the Transaction Opinions, Transaction Advisory Services, Corporate Valuation Advisory Services, Portfolio Valuation and Fund Advisory Services, Real Estate Valuation and Advisory Services, and Dispute Resolution Consulting practices.
Whether our clients are looking to fulfill their fiduciary duties, mitigate risk, or determine corporate value, we are there throughout the transaction process to provide objective advice based on rigorous analysis. We work on behalf of boards of directors, investors, trustees, and other corporate leaders to advise and issue opinions on a wide range of transactions.
As the No. 1 global M&A fairness opinion advisor over the past 20 years, Houlihan Lokey enjoys industry-leading credibility in transaction opinions. Our dedicated Fund Opinions group delivers fairness opinions and valuation advisory services to financial sponsors, including private equity funds, hedge funds, and credit funds.
