Litigation Support Services

Litigation Support Services

Disputes over the value of a business often occur among investors in closely held firms. In many instances, such disputes will result in litigation just as it does in the public markets.  We have provided services in several areas of litigation involving business valuation issues, including:

  • Dissenting Shareholder Actions
  • Economic Damages / Lost Profits
  • Corporate Restructurings and Reorganizations
  • Ad Valorem Taxation

With respect to ad valorem taxation, we have provided extensive valuation analysis and expert testimony in Tax Court of New Jersey involving litigation between major petroleum refiners and local townships.
