Litigation Support Services

The role of expert witnesses has greatly expanded over time in the American jurisprudence system. Pending or existing litigation can result in the need for a qualified professional to present his/her opinion to support or oppose evidence submitted to the court. Attorneys use financial experts in litigation for the same reasons businesses retain them as advisors. Juries and triers of fact seem to understand this fact and respect the practical experience of the expert.  Financial experts typically compute economic damages of plaintiffs (cross-plaintiffs) resulting from a legal wrong. In addition to economic damage calculation, CPAs with suitable experience consult or testify on matters of marketing, economics, and industry practice.
