Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Empire frequently brings its valuation expertise to the dispute and litigation arena. We provide clients with independent, well-documented valuation reports and related expert testimony. Our experience and technical knowledge enables us to be highly effective at critically analyzing the opposing side’s valuation work and preparing attorneys for cross examining opposing experts.
Valuation disagreements occur in many venues, from IRS audits, to sale/purchase negotiations, to arbitration hearings, to courtroom settings. Empire’s case experience runs the gamut from shareholder litigation and corporate dissolution actions, to lost profits and business damages cases, tax, estate, bankruptcy actions, and marital dissolutions.
Our professionals have testified in U.S. Tax and U.S. Bankruptcy courts, numerous state and local courts, and government agencies. They have also acted as court appointed valuation experts, and been retained in over 100 settled cases.
Litigation support services have become a significant part of our valuation business.
