For more than 40 years, Seiler LLP’s litigation support professionals have served as strategic partners to leading attorneys in thousands of marital dissolutions throughout California and the world.

Our team is among the most experienced and strategic in the industry, successfully navigating a broad range of cases, from straightforward business valuations to complex international investigations.

Complex Engagements

Seiler’s litigation support professionals average more than 20 years in the field and hold accreditations and advanced degrees such as Certified Public Accountant, Certified Valuation Analyst, Certified Fraud Examiner, Accredited in Business Valuation and Masters of Business Administration. Specialized skills include settlement negotiation and multi-state court representation, as well as expertise in complex tracings, stock option allocations and asset division.

We specialize in highly complex engagements involving affluent families and closely held businesses for both contentious and settlement-oriented cases. Because of our deep experience with complex engagements, we are adept at “thinking outside the box” and adding unique value with distinctive, sophisticated solutions. We also collaborate with a network of leading professionals from academic institutions, industry and professional service firms around the world to offer excellent counsel to each project.

Efficiency and Cost Containment

We understand the pressures and deadlines of litigation and are committed to helping our attorneys in an efficient and strategic manner. Our reports are effectively summarized and include the necessary narrative, numerical calculations, schedules, charts, graphs and source documents to provide a comprehensive explanation of our findings. This combination of summary plus in-depth detail allows clients to quickly grasp key conclusions, saving them time and cost.

We bring engagement efficiencies to our clients by assigning senior partners, managers and staff strategically, bringing just the right resources to our clients at the right time. This approach provides a high level of familiarization, responsiveness and efficiency to each engagement.
