Rowbotham & Company Offers the Following Litigation Support:

Damage Studies

A damage study can help determine or rebut claims of damages suffered. We can conduct a damage study by preparing a flow-chart model or a spreadsheet to process and assimilate many assumptions. A damage study typically involves quantifying lost profits, revenues, wages, cash flow or lost value of business goodwill. We can also facilitate settlements by resolving tax issues favorably for our clients.

Bankruptcy

For many firms, avoiding bankruptcy and potential litigation is paramount. We can conduct a review of your operations to identify the cause of financial difficulties and assist with renegotiating debt. We can review management's plans to improve operations through profit enhancement studies. Our tax department can help resolve tax claims and assessments, and advise you on complex bankruptcy tax issues. Other services include:
— Consulting on workouts and restructuring (extensive experience with complex cross border insolvency issues)
— Tax compliance and loss utilization review
