Blum & Colombe, Ltd. is not an accounting firm; it was established on the premise that being an independent firm is important to ensure that there is no real or perceived conflict of interest when valuing our clients’ businesses.

“I have used Tim as a valuation/damages expert in half a dozen commercial cases during the last 15 years. All of these cases were significant matters involving potentially 7 figure damage awards and in each case Tim provided me with well-reasoned and timely analysis that supported my client’s position. As an expert, Tim combines his expertise as a certified public accountant with the acumen he has acquired as a business man and is therefore highly credible both during depositions and at trial. Tim makes me a better advocate and is my ‘go to guy’ in big cases with complex valuation/damage issues.”Terry E. Nillesvon Briesen & Roper, s.c.
