Joint Apportionment Model
Valuation assignments are often conducted within the joint appointment model where we are appointed by both parties to arrive at a mutually cognizant value. Most of the activity involves bringing the parties together in a joint work session where we instruct them in valuation methodologies, display their results, interactively model the feasible alternatives resulting from their input, and produce final results at the end of the work session.
