Business Broker Expert Witness

When a business is for sale, both the buyer and the seller have high hopes and expectations as to the value of the business, the strength of the customer list, the loyalty of trusted employees, and the outlook for continued profitability. An in-depth due diligence process is essential to protect both the business buyer and seller from unexpected litigation.

Unfortunately, the actual sale of a business frequently leaves either the business buyer or the seller (or both) disillusioned. Disputes often arise when the owner is accused of withholding information, or the buyer is blamed with managing the business in a way that alienates employees or clients.
