Expert opinions for litigation

In cases being litigated, experts advise the courts or the parties if the parties do not have sufficient expertise or wish to hear the opinion of an outside party on the issue at hand. We are regularly engaged to provide opinions in these types of cases on issues which have to do with valuation in the broadest sense. The client is either the court or one of the parties.
