During his 30-year career, Mr. Phalon has focused exclusively on the valuation of businesses, partnership interests, intangible assets, and other financial interests.

Throughout his career, Mr. Phalon has demonstrated the ability to quickly and effectively evaluate complex issues, to focus discussions on key factors, and to communicate his analyses in a manner that often reduces confusion for clients and other professionals.

Mr. Phalon has also acted as a mediator when valuation matters were the primary issue. His diplomatic approach often brings clarity for all parties involved.
