I have used Mr. Ptacek as an expert in various litigation matters, both as to complex valuation questions and also with regard to his expertise in real estate financing, An example of an unusually complex valuation was the Park Plaza Hotel, a landmark property in Los Angeles which presented uniquely complex valuation questions.

I also used him regarding financing questions for an Ersa Grae Corp. v. Flour Corp. issue, i.e. the ability of a buyer to have raised multi-million dollar financing for a real estate sale wrongfully cancelled by the seller. Mr. Ptacek will provide you with that extra effort in order to strengthen your contentions and bolster the efficacy of his opinions.
