Gordian Group delivers credible litigation support enhanced by “real world” investment banking experience.
Expert witness testimony
In complex litigation cases, our clients need sound financial advice and strong analytical skills. Gordian Group regularly provides expert witness testimony for clients in and out of bankruptcy. Our professionals articulate compelling expert opinions, as well as rebuttals, to counter opposing expert reports in high-pressure court situations and depositions. We are recognized leaders in matters involving valuation, assessment of damages, solvency/fraudulent conveyance and quality of due diligence.
Gordian Group adds value by providing actual testimony, persuasive, experience-based judgments, quantitative and forensic analysis and strategic advice regarding damages, alternate litigation approaches and the relative strengths and weaknesses of opposing experts.
Executive Point of View
Gordian Group’s “real-world” litigation experience
Our clients do not want their expert witness making his or her maiden voyage on their make-or-break case. Our “real-world” litigation and expert witness experience distinguishes us from other firms. We are experts in distressed companies and the myriad of issues associated with that state of being. We come to this work honestly. We have advised distressed companies for decades.
Gordian Group has been involved in a vast number of important corporate litigation matters over its history, including Enron, Jewel Recovery, Zale Corporation, Merisel, MiniScribe, Olympia & York, Parmalat, Phar-Mor and Southeast Banking, in which we delivered success on account of our comprehensive transactional-based experience spanning many years and our proven analytical track record. Gordian Group is currently working with a number of litigators with respect to potential liabilities in the residential and commercial mortgage securitization arenas.
For more than 20 years, we have played a critical role in many significant corporate litigation matters. Our Chief Executive Officer, Henry Owsley, provided pivotal expert testimony in the precedent setting Heilig-Meyers case in 2008. His testimony was instrumental in securing a favorable verdict for our client and a full recovery of more than $140 million.
