Commercial disputes, more than any other type of litigation, are driven by likely costs to be incurred by both parties, so cost-benefit issues are always crucial, particulalrly in the current economic climate.
We can provide invaluable help to the parties in order that they can reach a negotiated settlement without incurring the time and cost of going to court.
Our expertise includes:
- Breach of contract
- Shareholder and partnership disputes
- Business valuation
- Business interruption and consequential loss – including claims under insurance policies
- Lending disputes such as fraudulent mortgage applications and false invoicing
- Professional negligence – auditor and accountant’s negligence, liability implications
- Due diligence
In some cases, matters can be resolved without going to court by the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation and expert determination.
We treat each case individually and will provide an initial assesment of the merits of the case to the parties. By using our expertise and experience to identify key issues in a case, we can help the parties understand the underlying accounting and financial issues, as well as ensuring that all relevant angles have been explored in detail.
We can then form a truly independent and robust expert opinion comprising a fair assessment of the issues. This is presented in the form of a clear, concise report capable of withstanding rigorous scrutiny in court, in such a way as to be of invaluable assistance to them in reaching their decision.
