Litigation Support

The stakes in high-end litigation are very large. Consequently, we are extremely selective about the cases we commit to support. We will only work on cases where we believe:

  1. We are the most qualified;
  2. We can add significant value; and
  3. We will have a strong positive working relationship with counsel

Summit Ridge Group is proud to have worked with many leading law firms on high-profile litigation matters – in both state and federal court, as well as in arbitration proceedings. Our domain expertise, combined with our financial valuation skills,  enable us to provide high-quality testimony and communicate efficiently with attorneys. We eliminate the difficult choice attorneys often face between a) a good valuation expert who does not know the industry; or b) an industry expert who is not a strong valuation expert. Litigation attorneys have reacted well to our selectivity and industry focus – a large percentage of our litigation support work comes from repeat business with prior law firms we have previously worked with.

Areas of Litigation Support Expertise

We are experts in a range of areas within the domain of valuation and in the communications sector.  Our specific areas of expertise include the following:


  • Business Appraisal and Valuation
  • Corporate Governance
  • Economic Damages
  • Intangible Asset Valuation
  • Investment Research Methods and Practices


  • Broadband
  • Satellite Communications
  • Wireless Spectrum and Orbital Slot valuation
  • Wireless Telecommunications
  • Related areas of Media and Technology

Skilled Support Services

Summit Ridge Group professionals have worked in a variety of roles, ranging from research to investment banking and consulting to regulatory analysis. This experience has given us a sophisticated perspective on strategic and business issues in the communications sector as well a variety of analytical tools rarely found in a single small firm. We are small enough to be able to provide personalize service. At the same time, we are large enough to have the team and other resources to compete with at the highest level. 

In particular, the legal background of J. Armand Musey, CFA, JD/MBA enables him to efficiently analyze large volumes of legal documents. His legal background also enables him to identify the legal relevance of industry issues and facilitates his ability to communicate with our clients’ legal teams.

Credible and Objective Expert Witness Testimony

We pride ourselves on providing clear, insightful and objective expert witness testimony. In addition to his industry expertise, J. Armand Musey’s experience as a Wall Street research analyst honed his writing skills as well as his ability to explain complex industry and financial issues to people with a variety of backgrounds. His well-supported expert testimony reports, under Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 26(a)(2) or similar state court regulation, are able to withstand scrutiny during depositions and in court testimony.
