We provide professional and innovative expertise to clients to solve business disputes in a courtroom setting.
Expert Advice + Witness Testimony = Making Your Case.
Companies and business owners sometimes find themselves involved in business disputes, fraud cases, breach of contract issues and other serious legal matters. While it’s always preferable to resolve these matters outside the courtroom, sometimes it is simply not possible. When this occurs, it’s essential to have a financial expert review financial evidence, conduct an analysis and prepare detailed findings suitable for a courtroom setting.
To help those involved in litigation, Smith Schafer offers litigation support services designed to accurately present essential evidence critical to the success of your case. Our team of professionals helps attorneys, businesses and individuals make a compelling case by offering professional valuation opinions and calculations, assessment of tax matters, fraud analysis, financial investigation and expert witness testimony. We can assist with financial reporting and tax fraud, shareholder disputes, bankruptcy and insolvency, business interruption, professional malpractice, divorce, family disputes and more.
