More than any other type of litigation, commercial disputes are driven by likely costs to be incurred by both parties, so cost-benefit issues are always crucial.
Our expert input can be invaluable in helping parties reach a negotiated settlement without incurring the time and cost of going to court. In dealing with a commercial dispute and helping to bring about its resolution, our expertise includes:
- Loss of profits
- Breach of contract
- Shareholder and partnership disputes
- Business valuations
- Business interruption and consequential loss
- Lending disputes - such as fraudulent applications and false invoicing
- Negligence - embracing financial issues and liability implications
- Due diligence
In some cases, matters can be resolved by either going to court or by Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation and expert determination.
We adopt a tailored approach to each commercial dispute, using our expertise and experience to identify key issues in a case, 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 the court in reaching their decision.
