Expert Determination

The ideal dispute resolution approach for contractual disputes

If you or your clients are struggling to conclude a financial dispute, you may need an expert determiner.

As forensic accountants, we are qualified Expert Determiners and have experience in providing determinations that are final and legally binding on the parties.

Expert Determination is a dispute resolution process in which an independent expert in the subject matter of the dispute, is appointed by the parties to resolve the matter. The expert’s decision is - by prior agreement of the parties - legally binding on the parties. Like all ADR processes, it is entirely confidential.

Expert Determination is ideally suited to disputes and matters of valuation and/or which are primarily dependent on technical issues eg does the computer match the specification; is the malfunction due to a design or a manufacturing fault; valuations of shares; rent reviews and contract performance matters. It can also easily be used in many other areas such as insurance wording disputes, sale of goods disputes, fitness for purpose and boundary disputes.
