Berkowitz Pollack Brant’s Forensic Accounting Testimony Proves Pivotal in Case against Donald Trump
Posted on December 11, 2015 by Richard Berkowitz, JD, CPA
When Donald Trump sought to terminate a lease agreement between his Trump National Doral resort and Pritikin Longevity Center, legal counsel for Pritikin turned to Berkowitz Pollack Brant’s Forensic and Litigation Support practice.
The firm’s team of forensic accountants conducted analysis to refute Trump’s request for a 10 percent increase in room rates charged to Pritkin guests. Rich Pollack delivered testimony in Miami-Dade Circuit Court demonstrating that, based on the resort’s historic revenue per available room rate (RevPar), Pritikin should be entitled to a 15 percent decrease in room rates.
Ultimately, Pritikin and its team prevailed, securing a 15 percent rent reduction through 2020.
