TORONTO, May 25 /CNW/ - Three of Canada's leading experts in damages quantification, business valuation and forensic accounting have established the new and compelling independent boutique practice, Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co. Inc.
Farley Cohen, Ross Hamilton and Peter Steger each have more than 20 years experience in the practice and are former Managing Directors of Navigant Consulting and Principals of Kroll Lindquist Avey. They have testified as expert witnesses in the Federal Court of Canada, the courts of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick and the United Kingdom, as well as in domestic and international arbitrations.
"The establishment of Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co. Inc. as an independent firm comes at a critical time as the Courts have recently implemented new rules regarding the qualifications and conduct of all expert witnesses, particularly in respect of objectivity, fairness and non-partisanship," say the three founding Principals. Each has been recognized as one of Canada's top expert witnesses in the annual Lexpert/American Lawyer guides. For more than two decades the Courts, law firms, corporations and individuals have looked to Messrs. Cohen, Hamilton and Steger to provide independent expert financial analyses and testimony.
Messrs. Cohen, Hamilton and Steger have been retained in several of Canada's largest and most complex financial disputes and investigations requiring independent expert accounting, financial and valuation analyses. These matters include: the quantification of damages and accounting of profits in intellectual property infringement disputes, class actions and other major contract disputes; business valuation analyses in shareholder, partnership and matrimonial disputes and in restructuring proceedings; and forensic accounting investigations of suspected financial wrongdoing including the execution of Mareva injunctions and Anton Piller search orders.
Offices for Cohen Hamilton Steger & Co. Inc. are located in First Canadian Place, in the downtown Toronto business core.
