Forensic Accounting & Valuation Key Matters

Plaintiff achieves a financial settlement  

Expert reports for use in proceedings in the Supreme Court of NSW opining on a multi-million dollar claim for damages (for various lost opportunities) by a leasehold pub from its landlord in relation to numerous breaches of the lease.  A suitable financial settlement was obtained by the plaintiff following the serving of our expert evidence.

Post-business acquisition dispute

Expert report for use in the Supreme Court of NSW involving a post-acquisition dispute, specifically earn-out clauses and deferred consideration payable, where Adam Giliberti opined that curved line regression techniques are preferable to the plaintiff’s expert simple linear regression to demonstrate no earn-out was payable.  The instructing solicitors successfully defended this matter after serving our expert evidence.

Plaintiff in arbitration comes out empty-handed 

Expert reports for use in arbitration proceedings opining on causation (i.e. dealing with financial health of the underlying business) and a multi-million dollar damages claim (for unpaid amounts and various loss of opportunities) relating to contractual matters in dispute involving the construction of a LNG pipeline in Queensland.  The instructing solicitors successfully defended this matter after serving our expert evidence.

Bank’s reputation was kept intact  

Opining on loss of profit and loss of value forming part of damages and having the Federal Court of Australia prefer Adam Giliberti’s expert evidence preferred over the other side’s expert in a matter in which he was instructed by a top-tier international law firm representing one of Australia’s Big 4 banks.  Court decided in favour of the clients on all matters argued by the instructing solicitors.
