About the Expert

One of the most troubling issues involving the active and passive appreciation doctrine is finding a viable “method” or “formula” for determining the portion of appreciation attributable to spousal efforts (active) and the portion attributable to third-party or market forces (Passive). The approach should be logically consistent, theoretically sound, and empirically rigorous. The process starts with identifying causal factors and testing for ones with a significant impact on the business value. I can help in this process by developing and validating economic models identifying passive factors and measuring their impact on business value. I provide analytic and research support to the legal and valuation community. I have testified as an expert witness in State and Federal Court for depositions, hearings, and trials. I have presented at national and international finance and valuation conferences more than sixty times in addition to publishing extensively in refereed scholarly finance research journals.
