Post Acquisition Expert Witnesses
Post acquisition expert witness candidates typically possess advanced degrees and have backgrounds and expertise in accounting or forensic accounting, business valuation, economic damages, and/or venture capital.
An acquisition involves the purchase of an entire firm (or business unit), where the entity maintains its structure, but now has a parent company; this parent company would have ownership of stock, equity interests or assets. Assets can be intangible, such as intellectual property, or tangible as in real estate.
When accounting and other financial post acquisition disputes arise, a financial expert is often called in to support a position or to serve as a neutral arbitrator. Every transaction is unique, and the circumstances leading up to a post acquisition dispute vary. These lawsuits can take the form of class actions whereby plaintiffs allege that the target’s board of directors violated fiduciary duties by not focusing on maximizing shareholder value. In an appraisal litigation suit, plaintiffs submit their shares to the court for appraisal, instead of accepting the deal price.
