Using proprietary analytical tools and following the FEWA code of ethics, Mr. Taber has unique credibility as an analyst and on the stand.  His forensic techniques identify key sales pipeline data that management (and the opposing party) may have totally missed.  His thorough reports, clean depositions, and expert witness testimony can help settle earn-out disputes, contention over "best efforts" clauses, exclusivity criteria, agency level-of-service standards, Salesforce.com implementation projects, and other classic sales, marketing, channel, and corporate integration issues. 

Mr. Taber's expert work is evenly split between plaintiff and defense engagements.  Engagements have included state and federal venues, including a class action suit with over $100M at stake and a patent infringement case involving over $700M in potential damages.

Example Results

In one recent arbitration case with over $25 M at stake that had been running for over 3 years, the opposition settled their case within 48 hours of receiving David Taber's expert report.  The other side didn't even go forward deposing him:  they knew their case was demolished.
