Litigation Support team at SMK consists of the company's senior
analysts, including a full-time designated litigation expert,
and is supported by a staff of professional and administrative
personnel. The firm makes extensive use of valuation and marketplace
data available from both our own internally generated volume
of work, and from data suppliers such as Standard & Poor's
Research Insight and Value Line Investment Survey, among others.
The firm library also contains information tracking case law,
valuation theories and various industry statistics.
Our team has experience in federal court, tax court, bankruptcy
court, and numerous and various state jurisdictions. Our experts
have also valued equity interests or assessed economic damages
for mediation and arbitration hearings, including U.S. Justice
Department deliberations. Recently Joseph Sharp, a 33-year
veteran with the Internal Revenue Service, joined SMK exclusively
to assist in tax related controversies and disputes.
In addition to deposition and trial witness testimony, the
firm also provides valuation and support consultation services
in contested matters. These engagements are centered on developing
strategy relative to existing appraisals from other sources,
examining and attacking opposing valuation arguments, and
devising exhibits or displays useful in the trial process.
The substantial annual volume of appraisal engagements performed
by SMK (over 300 annually) provides a solid foundation of
practical experience and in-depth industry knowledge which
can be applied in all types of litigated matters.
