Securities and Finance



NERA's bankruptcy financial advisory capabilities encompass enterprise valuation services, restructuring advisory services, and expert advice and testimony in adversary proceedings.

We have industry experience and specialized institutional knowledge in sectors across the economy including energy, healthcare, oil and gas, financial services, housing finance, and media and telecommunications. We also have specialized expertise in disciplines including finance, accounting, antitrust economics (analysis of competitive effects), structured finance, mass tort and liability valuation, analysis of ERISA plans, intellectual property valuation, and transfer pricing.

In addition to employing standard valuation methods, NERA economists draw on advanced techniques and models to analyze the feasibility of alternative restructuring plans and to value bankrupt company assets. We begin from first principles, starting with the underlying economic drivers and competitive dynamics of the markets we are asked to analyze. Clients benefit from the combination of our multidisciplinary approach and our experience as consultants, testifying experts, and arbitrators, as well as our firm's exacting standards for rigor and objectivity.

In fraudulent conveyance cases and other adversary proceedings, NERA economists provide insights into the scope of potential exposure, produce expert reports, and deliver expert testimony.
