Expert witness services and litigation support
Appraisal Associates provides expert reports for use in litigation contexts. These include fine and decorative art valuations, appraisal reviews and rebuttals. Our accredited appraisers have court experience, have qualified as expert witnesses and fully understand an expert's duty to provide fair, objective and non-partisan opinion evidence. We have experience with, and an understanding of, both the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice and International Valuation Standards.
In addition to expert witness services, we offer litigation support. We can provide opinions on compliance with professional appraisal standards and advise legal counsel in the preparation of examination for discovery questions related to personal property valuations.
Ontario Insurance Act umpire services
As fully accredited personal property valuers with many years of professional experience, the principals of Appraisal Associates are available as advisors to trainee, newly-qualified, and less experienced appraisers. We can help you to plan and focus your research, assist in the selection and interpretation of comparables, and guide you in the crafting of a logical and supportable appraisal report. As well, we are available to critique appraisal reports in order to ensure that your work product complies with professional standards.
