Litigation Consulting and Support Services
COLLABORATING WITH ATTORNEYS AND CLIENTS TO BRING THEIR LEGAL MATTERS TO SUCCESSFUL RESOLUTION
From complex, high-profile commercial disputes to business restructurings to standard types of civil litigation, every case is important and has meaningful consequences to the businesses or individuals involved. When our team is engaged to perform accounting analysis and litigation consulting and support services for your case, it becomes our top priority. We know all cases are high stakes and time sensitive, and that our performance is measured by how cost-efficiently, confidentially and swiftly, we help you resolve your matter. Our reputation, and the client referrals that grow our business, rest on achieving the goals of your case.
A PARTNERSHIP TO MANAGE YOUR BUSINESS DEALS, CONTROVERSIES AND RISK
Providing financial clarity and investigative and business prowess is the foundation of Mercadien’s litigation consulting and support services. We help clients and attorneys make sense of disparate, detailed sources of information. The pinnacle of our services is delivering objective, comprehensive data analysis and conclusions. That’s the expert reporting or testimony needed to help settle matters in your favor, thereby mitigating your risk and protecting your hard-earned assets.
Throughout all phases of our clients’ cases, from discovery to settlement negotiations, we provide sound strategic insights and integrity to strengthen them and reinforce our partnership. Attorneys and clients trust our multi-disciplinary approach to litigation consulting and support services. They know we use our significant professional experience to their benefit, while also looking beyond the numbers, to deal with business and people realities, and articulate solid findings and plans in a concise and persuasive manner.
As a result, we’ve assisted counsel and clients from numerous diverse industries and types of businesses on a variety of controversial issues, including commercial and criminal litigation, restructurings and bankruptcies, contract and shareholder disputes, economic damage calculations, and fraud investigations. From high-profile bankruptcies at large, national public retail chains to embezzlement scandals at regionally-known companies, we’ve been entrusted to negotiate and find innovative solutions on behalf of attorneys, plaintiffs, defendants, creditors, debtors, investors, banks and judicial or government agents, discreetly and expeditiously, in some cases continuing for many years.
