Our litigation accounting team has earned a reputation for being thorough and intuitive. We understand the sensitivity of these assignments and we know that communication and careful planning are the keys to a successful outcome.
When you need litigation support, your goal is to win cases and our experts will play a crucial role in helping you.
How we help: Litigation support
Our first step is to identify key documents, assess potential damages, and assist with Examinations for Discovery. Then we prepare an expert report, provide court testimony, and assist with cross-examination of the opposing expert.
We support our clients in a variety of litigation cases, including:
When a minority shareholder claims unfair treatment by the majority shareholder, a valuation of the minority shareholder’s interest is sometimes needed. In these circumstances, we can act as the court-appointed joint valuator or as the sole valuator for either party.
Breach of contract
When contracts are terminated, we assist our clients in the determination of damages. We can provide expert reports and court testimony to quantify the damages and have done so in numerous breach of contract cases.
Breach of fiduciary duty
Breach of fiduciary duty cases involve losses resulting from the abuse of a position of trust. Examples include the negligent acts of an investment manager or the theft of a customer base by a key employee. We prepare damages reports and conduct forensic accounting analyses in cases of breach of fiduciary duty.
Other commercial litigation involving damages quantification includes construction damages, professional negligence, and other matters involving a loss of profit.
