Bankruptcy Litigation Support and Forensic Accounting
When you need objective, financial expertise and advice on litigation matters
Companies, their counsel, lenders and creditors, debtors and other parties involved in bankruptcy often seek advice and assistance from outside financial experts. The list of potential litigation issues includes: avoidance actions, preferences, fraudulent transfers, breach of fiduciary duties, misappropriation of funds, unjust enrichment claims, directors and officers liability claims, related-party transactions, damages, equitable subordination, re-characterization of debt to equity actions, and other related matters.
It makes sense to involve financial experts who have experience working with legal counsel to analyze the issues and evaluate the financial ramifications and who can assist at trial as consultants or by testifying.
