Based in the Firm’s South Florida practice, he provides in-depth financial analysis in large, complex litigation matters, fraud investigations and valuation assignments, and has testified as an expert witness in litigation and international arbitration cases involving large multinational and Fortune 500 companies.
With over ten years of valuation and litigation support experience, Perez specializes in valuations for business combination, goodwill and other intangible assets (ASC 350 and 805), stock-based compensation, derivative instruments and hedging activities (ASC 718 and 815).
