The litigation of corporate and partnership disputes, will nearly always require expert witness testimony. One type of expert witness in shareholder, partnership, or corporate disputes are on the issue of damages – valuation of a company, valuation of a shareholder’s interest, valuation of a partnership’s projected profitability – to name a few. Expert witnesses are also often retained to provide testimony on causation and liability issues as they relate to the damages – what is the extent of the harm that can be attributed to the alleged wrongful conduct that is at issue in the dispute and what is the impact of that harm?

Experts retained early on in a case as a consult can supplement the attorney’s perspective, as damages might not be the only issue. An inspection of corporate records might show accounting impropriety. The value of certain technologies or business practices might arise. Having an expert witness to consult and, perhaps, testify can make or break a case.
