I practice Collaborative Family Law in Ottawa and recently had occasion to retain Jean-Claude Desnoyers to provide a value for a client’s business enterprise. As the matter was proceeding collaboratively, the retainer was made jointly by the spouses. JC’s report was timely, clear and detailed. After it was released the parties and counsel met with him to review it. JC’s approach was balanced and his explanations very helpful. Both spouses had confidence that his approach was objective and professional. I anticipate that his report and assistance will be instrumental in completing the settlement for these parties. On the basis of this experience I would not hesitate to recommend Jean-Claude as a business valuator.
