Dr. Feldman’s Vita

State Court

Dr. Feldman has appeared in multiple state court jurisdictions. The focus of these engagements is to determine the fair value of the equity of a private business. In a recent testimony, Dr. Feldman demonstrated to the court, that the value of a business can be significantly reduced by a substantial unfunded pension liability, even if the liability does not appear on the balance sheet.

Tax Court

During testimony, Dr. Feldman demonstrated to the court that his client’s captive insurance program was not an attempt to evade taxes, but rather, a program that insured real risks with premiums that were generally consistent with these risks. The case involved a family of companies, in construction, development, and real estate management, which were exposed to a variety of risks that were difficult to insure in the commercial market.

Bankruptcy Court

Axiom Valuation Solutions was engaged to determine the fair market value of highly illiquid financial securities. These securities were the assets of a securitization that was making only partial payments to its creditors. One of the creditors filed an action in federal bankruptcy court to put the entity into Chapter 11.
