Steve Hazel is a Senior Managing Director in FTI Consulting’s offices in Los Angeles and Denver. Mr. Hazel works in FTI Consulting’s Forensic & Litigation Consulting Segment as part of its Forensic Accounting & Advisory Services practice. Mr. Hazel has served as an expert witness in the State and Federal Courts, arbitrations and administrative hearings on behalf of defendants and plaintiffs. He has been retained by national, regional and boutique law firms on a variety of cases, including those involving lost profits, valuation, cost audits, tax issues, breach of contract, feasibility studies, lost opportunities, asset tracing, fraud investigations and employee dishonesty.

With 35 years of experience, Mr. Hazel has combined his accounting, business management, and finance backgrounds to quantify economic damages and value assets/businesses in a variety of circumstances, from adversarial proceedings to mergers and acquisitions, and for financial reporting and tax purposes. While he is involved in cases in the U.S. and internationally, he spends most of his time in Los Angeles, New York and Denver.

Working in diverse industries, Mr. Hazel relies on business acumen and judgment derived from over three decades as a forensic accountant. Mr. Hazel’s background in public accounting, including tax and auditing, affords him added insight into how valuations and financial analysis documents and concepts are used and challenged. Coupled with his entrepreneurial history as a part-owner of both established companies and start-ups himself, Mr. Hazel knows how business works, from the inside out and the outside in.

Representative experience includes extensive financial and damage analysis, valuation and tax related litigation assignments. Non-litigation valuation and investigation projects are also a large part of his practice. Financial analysis for lost profits and opportunities, accounting investigation, tax issues, reasonable royalties, asset, business and liability valuation purposes are common.
