ATICG Staff’s Philosophy of Practice

Our experienced ATICG staff members and professionals may specialize in various different fields, but we all adhere to the same philosophy of practice to show our dedication and appreciation for our clients. Whether we are handling ESOP valuations or giving testimony as a business valuation expert witness, you have a right to expect the best service from us.

Client Bill of Rights

  • Our Clients are the reason we have jobs. No clients, no jobs. Therefore, our clients have the right to be treated with respect and appreciation. We’re here because of you, not the other way around.
  • Our Clients have the right to have their calls returned within 24 hours. Whether they need to speak to ESOP attorneys or ESOP trustees or ASA business valuators, all ATICG staff members will adhere to this policy.
  • Our Clients have the right to speak to a “real” person when they call. Voice mail is offered only if the party being called is not in the office, or if the office is closed. As our client we are here to service you.
  • Our Clients have the right to expect and receive a state-of-the-art, high quality work product. We deliver our promises, from ESOP implementation to business appraisals, you can count on us!
  • Our Clients have the right to know exactly what they are engaging us to do and what the project will cost. Of course, on hourly-based litigation support services and projects (and other hourly projects), we cannot control the total expenditure of time or guarantee the final cost. But our clients have the right to expect fairness and integrity in our billing procedure.
  • Our Clients, If the need arises, have the right to contact any member of our professional staff, including ATICG’s CEO, at home during non-business hours. Our staff see to your requests and provide the phone numbers upon request.
  • Our Clients have the right to expect on time and on-budget work products. We understand that time and money are essential to business appraisals and litigation where valuation expert witness professionals can make or break the case.
  • Our Clients have the right to enjoy their professional association with ATICG staff.
  • Our Clients have the right to expect a non-biased, non-advocacy approach to their valuations, either it’s ESOP valuations or business valuations projects. Our valuation expert witness professionals can be trusted with their objectivity and independence.
  • Our Clients have the right to absolute confidentiality. Our clients have the right to review their confidential files at any time. No other party will be given access to this information.
