- Expert advice to senior debt holders in relation to a dispute regarding the potential breach of a loan agreement by the debtor. The senior debt was owed by a UK niche home furnishing retailer and was originally part of a leveraged structure resulting from an MBO that occurred in 2007. Due to the likely decline in the value of the underlying business the senior lenders considered that a breach of the loan agreement had occurred. Failure to negotiate a remedy agreeable to all parties resulted in the filing of a claim in the UK High Court. Expert valuation advice was provided in this context.
- Expert advice to an inventor in a dispute in the UK High Court arising from the alleged expropriation/dilution of her interest in the company she founded by third party investors. The company was set up to exploit the IP relating to one of her inventions and was at an early stage when the actions that triggered the dispute took place.
