Two Practice Areas and Partner David Stern Are Recognized in the Prestigious 2021 Guide

For the second consecutive year, global advisory firm StoneTurn has been included in the Chambers & Partners 2021 Litigation Support Guide. StoneTurn’s Litigation Advisory and Investigations practices were recognized in the 2021 guide in addition to London-based Partner David Stern, who is ranked Band 2 in the guide’s UK Forensic Accountants category.

Select commentary of StoneTurn in the guide includes:

  • “I would always have StoneTurn on my list. The team there are very practical and pragmatic, and not too academic like some others. They strike the right balance. Particularly useful for quantum issues, too.”
  • “The team are not rigid in their approach. They were responsive and sharp, really getting to the issue. They were great at brainstorming the matter and analyzing lots of transactions in a sprawling and exhaustive process for them. Ultimately, StoneTurn was great at cutting to the core of what steps needed to be taken and what did not.”
  • “We felt they had a great objective view of the matter, and produced a beautifully written report which was really clearly put in layman’s terms, while displaying a great deal of uncovered intelligence and forensic accounting knowledge.”

In the 2021 guide, a client notes “David comes with a very strong background. I’d always have him on my list of preferred vendors.” David has more than 25 years of experience in forensic accounting investigations and complex business litigation. Clients and counsel alike turn to David for his expertise in the quantification of loss and valuation analysis as well as accounting expert witness work in contractual disputes, joint venture and shareholder disputes, post-acquisition claims, competition and antitrust work, civil fraud in domestic and off-shore matters and business interruption claims. Well-known for his high-quality work product and highly regarded by clients, David is consistently recognized by Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration Expert Witnesses and Who’s Who Legal: Experts – Economic Consulting – Quantum of Damages.
