The StoneBridge approach
From the beginning, we have taken a highly specialized approach to litigation support, believing that it requires the concentrated talents and expertise of a dedicated staff.
Our Litigation Support practice includes professionals who are CPAs, Certified in Financial Forensics (CFFs), Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs), Certified Internal Auditors (CIAs), Accredited in Business Valuation (ABVs), and Accredited Senior Appraisers (ASAs). Read about our leadership team.
Our professionals have the experience and expertise to provide a thorough, objective analysis of the valuation reports prepared by opposing experts. In some cases, they have been appointed by the court to act as valuation experts, an indication of the high regard in which they are held.
Because we are associated with a large and diverse regional CPA firm, EFPR Group, our professionals also have expertise in tax, valuation and forensic accounting, all of which lend dimension and problem-solving to our litigation support.
We have extensive experience testifying in U.S. Bankruptcy court as well as state and local courts.
A sense of purpose and urgency
We always work with a sense of urgency, because we understand the implications litigation has for our clients. Because we are a dedicated team, we are not subject to the distractions or delays of a CPA practice also attempting to deal with a busy tax season.
