Issue: A group of shareholders own a variety of businesses. One shareholder passes away and the other shareholders indicate to the deceased shareholder’s estate that the value of his shares is negligible. A law firm retains The Phi Group to assist.

Implication: Working in collaboration with the law firm, The Phi Group analyzes information from the defendants, and prepares its own questions. Using forensic techniques, it analyses the source documents (contracts, invoices, banking documents, bank statements etc) used by the defendant and uncovers additional information and arrives at different conclusions, which is submitted to the Court as expert evidence.

Phi Solution: The law firm and The Phi Group succeeded in showing the Court the profitability and value of the group of businesses the shareholders owned. The deceased shareholder’s estate was awarded compensation in exchange for its shares. The Phi Group also recommended possible structuring alternatives for the settlement claim.
