A client of ours who managed a nursing home came to us and asked us to help her put together a business plan for a personal care company she wanted to start. She had very little capital of her own so she needed help funding the project. She needed assistance in negotiating with lending sources and locating investors in the project. We helped her build a business plan, negotiate loans with a local bank and a regional development revolving lender. In addition, we recruited a group of local investors who put up the majority of the capital. Today she has built and is operating three personal care homes within a thirty-mile radius of Indianola, Mississippi. The project has exceeded the expectations of all involved, and we have a client who has tripled her personal income and will have created substantial wealth for her children.
With our office located in the richest agricultural production area in the world, we have grown up around farming and farm related businesses. One of our farm clients came to us several years ago concerned about his lender's reluctance to lend funds secured with his catfish inventory. It's hard to inventory fish swimming underwater, but working with the lender we were able to devise alternate ways to verify the accuracy of our client's fish inventories. This allowed our client to feed efficiently and today he operates an eight thousand acre catfish production farm, a fifteen thousand acre row-crop operation and owns one of the largest and most profitable fish processing/marketing operations in the world.
Whether you are trying to start up a new business or rejuvenate an existing business, we can help streamline your operation, plan for the future and keep you out of trouble with Uncle Sam.

Our litigation support and forensic accounting services to defense attorneys representing insurance companies of fish feed companies on feed contamination/ingredient cases were invaluable in discrediting the plaintiffs' damage models and disposing of the cases within insurance coverage. Our forensic examinations revealed other potential causes for the alleged damages and substantially lowered the judgment and settlement for the insurance companies. One of these was a jury trial and the other settled before trial. Our firm is located in the heart of catfish production in the United States and we have extensive experience in aquaculture production and related operations.
Our valuation and forensic services have been successfully used to identify and value marital and non-marital property giving the divorcing parties, their attorneys, and the Chancellors the information they need to provide for an equitable distribution. In representation of the non-moneyed spouse we have been able to substantially increase the amount received, and in representation of the moneyed spouse we have been able to limit the amount required to settle the case.
In a court-appointed expert role we were able to verify and quantify the disputed issues and help the parties come to a mutually satisfactory agreement avoiding the time and expense of a trial.
