Residential Real Estate Development Expert in Real Estate Valuation

Case Description:

A residential real estate development expert was needed for a breach of fiduciary duty case. The plaintiff was a residential home builder and developer. The defendants were employees of the developer. The plaintiff claimed that the defendants, with responsibility to acquire residential development property on behalf of their employer, breached their fiduciary duties by diverting real estate opportunities to another source for their own financial gain. The plaintiff sought over $10 million in damages, including lost profits, for real estate development opportunities.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate a residential real estate development expert with experience in the acquisition, financing and marketing of large-scale, mixed-use real estate developments consisting of primarily residential areas with some light commercial use areas. This expert would be asked to opine on issues related to the real estate valuation of the properties involved in the dispute and the potential profits the plaintiffs contend they lost as a result of the defendants’ alleged activities.
