Litigation and Valuation Services

At RSM, we understand that when it comes to quantifying damages, you rely on professional expertise, independence and objectivity to quantify financial loss for settlement negotiations. Our team of litigation accountants, economists and business valuators provide opinions and expert testimony on a variety of topics including: personal injury, business valuation, insurance and contract disputes, commercial damages and family law claims. In cases where challenges to wills or estate holdings are subject to litigation, our team members can be appointed by the court, under the Ontario Estates Act, to serve as an Estate Trustee during Litigation.

Our litigation accounting and business valuation team has worked with plaintiffs, defendants, insurers, businesses, partnerships and government entities for more than 20 years, assisting with a vast array of services.

Coming from a range of professional backgrounds, from litigation accountants, chartered business valuators, to statisticians, actuaries and economists, we commit to providing you with the expertise you need no matter what the situation.
