Financial Expert Witness Testimony

Cendrowski Corporate Advisors provides financial expert witnesses who artfully and simply communicate complex case facts through written reports and oral testimonies in legal forums.

Juries, judges, arbitrators, and mediators need to gain a complete understanding of accounting concepts and the economics of a transaction for a case to be successful. Our expert witnesses are backed by years of experience in their respective fields. Before joining the firm, many worked in industry or have an academic background in their field of expertise.

To help identify case issues and needed documents early in the litigation process, our expert witnesses stay involved through all phases of litigation, including pre-case assessments, discovery assistance, case analysis, and testimony at trial. We have a defined client and document intake process based on our experience in expert testimony, including electronic and paper-based evidence capture, document indexing, and appropriate chain of custody controls.

Our financial expert witness team provided detailed testimony regarding CPA standards of care in opposition to the Big Four firm’s findings. We reviewed the firm’s work papers relating to the audit and firm staffing and scheduling procedures to help our client, the Trustee, identify how the company audit failed to detect the financial anomalies. Legal counsel was able to negotiate a very favorable outcome for the trustee.
