Gould Consulting Services was founded to assist counsel and their clients to understand complex financial and business valuation issues in a variety of disputed matters by listening, evaluating the facts and documents produced in the case, and explaining our findings and opinions clearly and in a practical manner.
Independence, quality, integrity and responsiveness are the cornerstones of our business. Because of our diverse experience, we are able to think “outside-the-box” – an important attribute for forensic accountants.
Leanne has over 20 years of experience in forensic accounting, business valuation, and bankruptcy consulting having held senior management positions with national financial advisory and bankruptcy boutique accounting firms and the Investigations & Dispute Services practice of a “Big Four” accounting firm. She has provided expert reports and testimony in matters before U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, U.S. District Courts, State Courts and arbitration hearings.
