Business Valuations Ltd., a San Diego based consultancy specializing in court valuation and advisory services, said it opened a new office in Irvine, its seventh.

The company said it opened the new office in response to the growth in referrals from trust, estate, transaction and litigation attorneys, accountants, and other advisors as a result of recent changes to tax codes.

Founded in 1954, Business Valuations has other offices in Albuquerque, N.M., Boston, New York, Las Vegas, Nev., and San Francisco.

In addition to business valuations, offices offer other advisory services associated with owner risk concentration and how it influences a company’s value, the company said.
