Stock Valuation Expert with Fairness Opinions Experience
A stock valuation expert was sought to estimate the pre-merger-announcement stock price for a company in a class action suit.

Plaintiffs were pursuing economic damages due to alleged breach of fiduciary duty by the board of directors in misrepresenting the actual value of the stock.
