The Financial Insight You Need to Resolve Tough Matters
When you're embroiled in a divorce or commercial litigation, avoiding a drawn-out dispute is a high priority. Achieving a quick resolution-ideally before the matter enters the courtroom-depends on clear and complete communication of the financial issues that are often at the heart of these matters. That's why you need reinforcement from experts who have the battle scars and credibility to support a winning argument.
Bennett Thrasher's litigation support team is among the largest and most comprehensive in Atlanta. Our accredited valuation professionals, forensic accountants, divorce financial analysts and other financial experts have collectively testified in hundreds of litigation matters, as well as in mediations and other collaborative situations.
We draw on this experience to support our opinions with credible and thorough business valuations, lost profits and damages calculations, and expert testimony in divorce and commercial cases.
Domestic Litigation Support
In a divorce proceeding, if either party doesn't have all the information needed to make an informed decision, accurate conclusions will be a challenge to attain.
