The aim of a business contract is to try to provide certainty for both parties.
A large proportion of the work our forensic accounting team undertake is quantifying losses in business disputes; acting equally for both claimants and defendants, as well as a Single Joint Expert
Our clients range in size from SMEs to large and listed companies and the quantum of cases ranges from the low hundreds of thousands to hundreds of millions of pounds. Many of these matters have an international dimension.
The disputes that we are instructed on include:
- Contractual disputes
- Breach of warranty and misrepresentation
- Professional negligence
- Shareholder disputes (including s994 petitions) and partnership disputes
- Claims against Governmental organisation
- Commercial agency claims
OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Many of the commercial dispute matters on which we are instructed rely upon our expertise in valuation matters.
Whist our senior team members have acted as expert witnesses in hundreds of UK and international disputes and are highly experienced in giving evidence under cross examination, we also recognise that many matters can be settled prior to a hearing. We approach the quantification of losses in a commercial and robust manner, to provide credible reporting which should assist the parties in reaching settlement.
