Bond & Pecaro provides expert testimony and litigation support to clients and their attorneys in complex litigation matters. The firm's litigation services have consistently proven their value in today's litigious marketplace. As an example, Bond & Pecaro's management team acted as expert witnesses and prepared sophisticated damage analyses in multi-million dollar lawsuits regarding television tower collapses.
Bond & Pecaro has extensive experience providing focused consultation in legal proceedings. Members of the firm have provided litigation support, submissions, and expert testimony in a wide variety of venues, including state and Federal courts, tax courts, mediations, assessment hearings, royalty tribunals, arbitrations, bankruptcy courts, and regulatory proceedings before the IRS, FCC, FTC, Treasury, and other government agencies.
To date, members of the firm have provided expert testimony in over 75 regulatory, tax, and civil cases, representing both plaintiffs and defendants alike. We carefully protect our reputation for impartiality. As a result, we do not have a history of, or reputation for, favoring one particular type of litigant that may be used to imply bias before a court.
Similar to expert testimony, Bond & Pecaro’s principals have extensive experience providing counsel with valuation and industry expertise in legal proceedings. Members of the firm have provided litigation support to attorneys working in a wide variety of venues, including state and Federal courts, the Delaware Court of Chancery, Federal and State tax courts, mediations, royalty tribunals, legislative proceedings, and other legal venues. Our in-depth knowledge of the media, communications, and technology industries provides our client’s legal team with valuable assistance in developing strategies that best represent and advance the client’s position in the litigation proceedings.
Property Tax Testimony
Members of Bond and Pecaro have provided critical testimony in property tax proceedings that have resulted in highly favorable outcomes for our clients. We are deeply involved in the area of property taxation, particularly with respect to cable television, telecommunications, and publishing assets. Among common issues are the amount of taxable property owned by a taxpayer, the fair market value of that property, and the impact of technological and economic obsolescence. By inspecting and documenting the amount, nature, and condition of taxable property present at a business, the Bond & Pecaro staff can present reliable, pertinent evidence and render informed opinions in assessment appeals hearings and other property tax litigation.
Bond & Pecaro also has extensive experience providing expertise to companies involved in regulatory proceedings and filings. Our substantial industry knowledge and the respect we have gained over the years for our fair-mindedness and thorough analyses can help the client’s attorneys make substantive regulatory filings before the FCC, FTC, and other state and Federal agencies that provide strong, independent support for our clients’ positions.
