Disputes over the value of a company or other financial interests are sometimes unavoidable. The accurate assessment of financial impact and value as well as damages in these legal matters often depends on independent, science-based and hands-on analytic, economic, financial and quantitative analysis.
BFI serves in litigation, arbitration and mediation in national courts as well as with international arbitrations. Frequently we support individual shareholders or management boards, and their legal advisors with complex valuation issues related to their dispute. We have valued damages of loss of shareholder value, disputed lender and business value, corporate and personal claims, labor and employment disputes, distressed lending, bailing outs and lost profits. Both inside and outside of court.
BFI’s independent, objective analysis and verbal testimony helps reinforce legal positions. Our valuation experts assist for those concerned with fairness opinions or second opinions when value is at stake. We also provide expert witness services commissioned by courts of law.
We are a member of the Dutch Institute of Certified Valuators (NIRV), the European Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (EACVA), the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA), and the National Register of Expert Witnesses (LRGD).
