Litigation

In the courtroom, reliable and relevant expert testimony can represent the fine edge between success and failure. But we have no ambition to be full time “opinions for hire” – we deliver solid perspective that juries can trust.

Our firm provides valuation, economic, and profitability assessment services in litigation. This includes the services, without conflict or lack of independence, on economic damage claims including lost profits resulting from lost sales, reasonable royalties, full or partial diminution of value, disgorgement of profits, and unjust enrichment. Our clients typically include business owners and their litigation attorneys. We also provide expert testimony on related business matters, including, but limited to, alter ego, reasonably equivalent value, insolvency, disguised dividends, CPA’s duties and responsibilities, business valuators’ standards, and shareholder oppression and its impact on fair value.
