Dispute Advisory

Clients rely on us as consulting and testifying experts to explain the financial factors impacting their disputes. We are also regularly appointed by courts, or jointly by the parties as a special referee or to provide independent expert determinations. We use our diverse skills and experience to help you pinpoint the exact type of expertise and evidence required. We regularly call on our industry experts and global colleagues, when required, to ensure you have the best expert for your matter. We believe that involving the expert throughout the matter is essential for the preparation of a robust expert report that can withstand a rigorous cross-examination.

How We Help

We support legal teams in a wide variety of claims and disputes, including litigation, arbitration, mediation and expert determinations. We analyse financial information and transaction data, quantify loss and damage, provide valuation opinions, prepare formal expert reports and provide oral evidence. We act as a consulting expert, an independent testifying expert, a single expert, a special referee or an expert determiner.

Whatever your specific situation requires, we help to methodically examine and analyse your position, test theories, evaluate strategies, quantify damages, and anticipate and critique opposing arguments. We are known for providing clear and concise opinions supported by in-depth analysis, even when dealing with the most complex issues.

Our extensive bench of accountants, auditors, business valuers, industry experts and former regulators – both in Australia and overseas – provide the foundation for our litigation and expert witness services. We strongly believe in helping the legal team to find the best expert for your matter.
