I specialize in machinery & equipment appraisals across various industries including mining, power generation, pulp & paper, foundries and automotive to name a few. Clients should come to me if they need assistance with determining values for insurance placement, financing, purchase price allocations and expert witness testimony (I have been certified as an expert witness).
