Professional Services

Litigation Support Services

The difference between winning and losing a court case, not to mention the size of the award, often comes down to expert witness testimony. Using sophisticated computer modeling and proprietary business valuation software, we have been able to make compelling arguments, through the use of computer generated trial exhibits and personal testimony, to help our clients prevail in court. Our expert witness testimony in pre-trial depositions, for either plaintiff or defendant, has forced out-of-court settlements; greatly reducing time spent for trial preparation and subsequent legal fees.

Corporate Finance & Loans for Buying a Business

The most important component in obtaining funding is a complete and professional loan submission package. Statistically speaking, 80% of all loans that might otherwise qualify for funding are turned down due to poor packaging. On numerous occasions we have been able, with proper packaging, to secure funding for clients who had previously been turned down by other lenders and/or brokers.

Commercial Real Estate Services

Corporate Investment is one of the few business brokerage firms in Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia that has the experience, expertise, continuing education, and licensing to handle the real estate component of a combination business and real estate transaction.
