Expertise. Each of Messrs. Cohen, Hamilton and Steger has been recognized as one of Canada’s top expert witnesses in the annual Lexpert/American Lawyer guides. The three founders and fellow Principals, Paula Frederick and Prem Lobo, have testified as experts in damages quantification, business valuation and forensic accounting in the Federal Court of Canada, the courts of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick and the United Kingdom, as well as in domestic and international arbitrations.
Independence. The firm does not provide audit services or tax advice, or operations consulting to clients. As a result, the firm is truly independent of conflicts that arise in major accounting firms and other consultancies. Law firms and corporations seek our independent and disciplined assessment of their most complex financial disputes.
Objectivity. New rules have been implemented by various Canadian courts regarding the qualifications and conduct of all expert witnesses, particularly in respect of objectivity, fairness and non-partisanship. The firm is retained regularly by both plaintiffs and defendants alike for its fair and objective approach to all assignments – another hallmark of the firm.
