Complex commercial litigation often requires intricate financial evidence on damages. KSV addresses this need with sophisticated, timely and attentive client service. Our reports and testimony are thorough and concise.
The experts in KSV’s valuations group are all Chartered Professional Accountants and Chartered Business Valuators. Our experts hail from large international accounting firms and together have decades of experience quantifying financial loss. We have provided testimony in Canada and other countries, both in courts and arbitration proceedings (including in international arbitrations under the NAFTA and BIT’s). Combined we have testified over 80 times, including in several precedent-setting cases. We also have experience acting as a court-appointed Inspector to investigate the affairs of a corporation pursuant to a shareholder dispute. Among other things, our cases include multi-party actions, class actions and investor-state disputes.
Our experts have been retained in virtually every type of case including:
- patent disputes
- trademark disputes
- international trade disputes
- post-transaction disputes
- product liability
- breach of contract
- breach of fiduciary duty
- shareholder oppression
- franchise disputes
- matrimonial disputes
- insurance claims
Our clients include both plaintiffs and defendants, and range in size from relatively small Canadian-owned private enterprises to the largest companies in the world. Damages being sought range from less than $1 million to several billion dollars.
We are retained by a wide variety of law firms, from sole practitioners to the largest firms in the world. We have experience with the vast majority of medium and large Canadian law firms across the country. References are available upon request. We are also often retained by government and quasi-governmental organizations.
