Specific areas of the service include:
A dealership lost its Principal in tragic and unexpected circumstances. His business had made a healthy profit over the years, but after his demise it entered into a period of decline. ASE were engaged as an expert witness for the defence in an insurance case, to determine how the business would have performed if things had stayed as they were. ASE drew on its wealth of industry data to establish trends for the franchises represented, and produced accurate estimates of the variance in profit historically, and moving forwards. This resulted in savings in excess of £1m for the client.
