We have a great deal of experience dealing with all manner of disputes, including amongst others:

  • Professional negligence claims
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of warranty
  • Completion account disputes
  • Misrepresentation claims
  • Compulsory purchase orders
  • Product recall claims
  • Regulatory disputes
  • Royalty disputes

Our team excels in delivering detailed economic and accounting analyses that have helped many clients achieve successful resolutions to their disputes. We aim to provide information that is transparent and concise and supported by financial evidence that meets the needs of our clients and their respective legal advisors at all stages throughout the dispute settlement process.

Our technical ability is second to none. We are the first to recognise that loss of profits does not equate to loss of accounting profits and that the legal issues at the heart of the dispute can make a significant difference to the quantum calculations. We can provide supportable opinions as to whether breaches of accounting warranties, particularly in SPAs, have occurred, and our assessment of the losses arising from any alleged breaches, including potential overpayments for businesses, supported by statistical or market data.

As can be seen from our CVs we operate in all recognised resolution channels, including litigation, arbitration, mediation and assisted settlements, and have been appointed in many capacities, as an expert witness, shadow expert, jointly appointed expert and court appointed expert. Indeed, our individuals have received specialised training in a number of these forums. Alternatively, we are increasingly being asked to act by our clients in an in-house consultancy capacity, providing the same robust advice, but on a less formal basis, which is proving to far less costly for our clients than appointing an expert.

Our flexibility in approach as expert or consultant will assist you in achieving your objectives.
