CARAVATI PAGANI prepares, in the interest of its Clients, expert reports and technical advice, both civil and fiscal. In this context, we also carry out evaluations of companies or company branches in the event of transfers, revaluations or exchanges. The expert reports and consultations drawn up by the professionals of our Firm can be regularly certified. This characteristic makes them suitable for use also as Technical Consultancies of Parties (CTU) in arbitrations and corporate disputes. In the event of disputes or arbitrations, thanks to the considerable experience of our staff, we can provide technical assistance as consultants.
THE ADVANTAGE OF EFFECTIVE EXPERT REPORTS AND TECHNICAL ADVICE
By providing expert advice, clients can have their interests protected by a professional, even before judicial, administrative and financial authorities. The choice of specialists in the field guarantees the competence of the entire investigation and study process. In particular, the team provides expert advice both in and out of court, including
- drafting of the expert report
- deposit of the report
- swearing in at the Court.
CARAVATI PAGANI is also particularly specialised in the valuation of companies, company branches and company shares.
Our expertise and technical consultancy services
Specifically, our firm, in providing technical consultancy services and carrying out appraisals, deals with the following for Clients:
- carrying out evaluations of companies and company branches,
- preparing and certifying valuation reports for both statutory and fiscal purposes (contributions, revaluations, exchange),
- providing technical consultancy for parties (CTP) in arbitrations,
- providing technical assistance in corporate litigation.
In civil matters, technical consultancy is provided to the judge or the parties. As court-appointed technical consultants, we act as the judge’s auxiliaries in order to provide precise answers to the questions he asks during the assignment hearing. It is also our responsibility to report the results in the expert report.
The different tasks of the OTC and the CTP
Both the OTC and the CTP act as consultants in civil or penal legal proceedings. The court-appointed expert witness works beside the judge and provides advice based on specific competences established by the Code of Civil Procedure. His task is to answer useful questions drafted by the judge in order to clarify the parties’ positions.
The role of the party’s expert witness, instead, is to give advice to the parties in dispute. Each party chooses which expert to appoint to work alongside the court-appointed consultant. The specific duties of these two professionals, who must be registered with the appropriate professional association, are therefore similar in some respects and in some ways complementary. Following a careful analysis of the reports provided by the OTC and the CTP, the judge can issue the judgement.
ACCURATE AND COMPREHENSIVE VALUATION REPORTS
Expert reports are articulated texts that include numerical parts, graphs and images. They are drawn up in order to provide a clear and complete description of a property and to evaluate it economically. Our task in drawing up these reports is to indicate all the intrinsic and extrinsic characteristics of the asset with an indication of the valuation method and criteria used.
