Appraisal, litigation support services, and expert witness testimony and in connection with bankruptcy case: ALT Hotel LLC, case number 11-bk-19401, in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois

The Results
  • Prepared self-contained appraisal report
  • Subsequently provided litigation support services and expert witness testimony 
  • “I employed Dan Lesser and his team at LW Hospitality Advisors® as my valuation experts in connection with a hotly contested confirmation battle involving a chapter 11 plan of reorganization for a large hotel located on Chicago’s “Gold Coast.” They did a magnificent job preparing strong, highly literate, carefully documented, and well-reasoned appraisal reports. Moreover, Dan’s opinions glowingly passed the most rigorous of litigation “tests.” In both a lengthy deposition, and two full days of direct and cross-examination on the witness stand in bankruptcy court in Chicago, Dan’s expertise, work product, and mettle were tested by a team of some of the best trial lawyers in America. His performance as an expert witness was outstanding. The case settled before the conclusion of trial. I can confidently say, however, that the persuasiveness of Dan’s expert report and the authoritative resonance of his testimony greatly contributed to a very favorable outcome for my client. I look forward to working with Dan and his team in the future.” – Neal L. Wolf, Esq. – Principal – Neal Wolf & Associates, LLC
