IPO Expert Witnesses
IPO expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds in venture capital, private equity funds, valuation, corporate finance, investment banking, securities law, corporate governance, and financial markets. While a consulting expert will have specialized knowledge, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people (such as a judge and jury) can understand the litigation issues and evidence.
Underwritten by investment banks, an initial public offering (IPO) provides for a private company to transform into a public company by selling shares to institutional investors and becoming listed on one or more stock exchanges. Litigation support by an IPO expert could represent either the plaintiff or defendant, and work could include document review, arbitration proceedings, expert opinion, an expert report, deposition testimony, and/or courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a professional with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek an IPO specialist for pre-litigation consulting services.
