H.S. Grace & Company, Inc.
Litigation Support

Working with both plaintiffs and defendants, H.S. Grace & Company, Inc. has been engaged as testifying experts in more than 150 cases, addressing business conduct, corporate governance, management liability and other issues.

Our advisors bring unparalleled experience as senior executives of major corporations and other organizations, well-respected academics and technical experts spanning a range of industries. Creating a team tailored specifically to the assignment, we:

• Conduct detailed business analyses to evaluate the impact of all parties’ actions and decisions on damages, causation and liability
• Develop fact-based and experience-based damage assessments; challenge inappropriate damage models and amounts
• Produce expert analyses, reports and opinions to support settlement strategies and negotiations and/or provide testimony in court

Our litigation services range from early case diagnostics through expert trial testimony. We help clients prepare effective offenses and defenses, assessing causation and evaluating damages. We are experts in analyzing the reasonableness of business conduct and practices, including issues related to corporate governance, business judgment, investment decision-making, finance and accounting. Our real world, practical experience and deep understanding of business has resulted in an enviable track record of helping deliver beneficial outcomes for our clients over nearly three decades.

Dave Gilfillan, the retired former head D&O Claims, AIG, and now Chief Claims Officer for CRC Group, Wholesale & Specialty Brokers, has this to say:
The Grace group’s ability to dissect large and small complex matters quickly, thoroughly and reasonably distinguishes them among the consultants. The opinions of attorneys and insurance claim handlers, no matter how insightful, or accurate, will never be viewed as objective. The Grace group, looking through a business lens, can provide an independent expert opinion that enables their clients to put a stake in the ground via Grace’s assessment of business merits and Grace’s estimates of damage. Additionally, because they are not asked to rely on assumptions, and there are no “off the shelf” experts (or consultants) to put up against them, their opinions seem to carry more weight with the Courts.”
