Kroll’s experts are highly skilled in providing consulting services and expert testimony in a wide range of securities disputes, including allegations of insider trading, false and misleading disclosures, market manipulation, market competition and many others.

In disputes involving public companies, our experts perform event studies to assist in measuring the economic effects of a triggering event or set of events on the share price of the listed firm, for example, in cases involving alleged accounting misstatements and fraud involving the company.  Kroll’s economists can undertake detailed event studies, identify relevant benchmarks, recreate share prices but-for the events, and perform detailed portfolio and claimant modeling to assess the extent of losses incurred by investors during the course of the event.

Our expertise also extends to matters involving alleged breaches of fiduciary duties by directors in the context of securities transactions, and other corporate governance issues or disputes involving board, audit committee and special committee processes. We also have deep expertise in examining due diligence processes relating to securities transactions.

We specialize in a wide range of securities, including public and private equity; straight, convertible and other hybrid debt instruments; LIBOR, FX and other market rates or indices; and futures, forwards, options, swaps and other derivative securities. We also provide analysis and testimony relating to trade execution issues. In addition to our work involving issuers, our experts regularly work on claims, acting on behalf of and against financial institutions, broker-dealers, institutional investors and insurers.

We have acted in diverse cases involving valuation as part of shareholder disputes. We have experience in analyzing, modeling and valuing businesses in a variety of complex situations and in multiple industries and regions. We also regularly provide sensitivity and scenario analyses in such matters.
