Expert & Dispute Resolution
There are many ways in which we can contribute to the successful resolution of a dispute
We work on completion accounts disputes including providing accounting advocacy in substantial disputes, determining disputes as independent expert, and providing accounting evidence and explanations in post-transaction disputes such as earn-outs.
We have worked on and are currently working on a wide variety of corporate transaction cases including:
- Appointed as the expert under the ICAEW President’s Appointments Scheme to determine the disputed matters in draft completion accounts and an earn-out following the sale of an insurance business.
- Acting for the buyer in an expert determination to resolve a completion accounts dispute between two companies in the entertainment sector, with over a hundred disputed items and £100 million in dispute.
- Advising the sellers of a technology company in relation to their liability and the valuation of potential claims for breach of accounting warranties, fraudulent misrepresentation and advising on the counterclaim for an earn out under a sale and purchase agreement.
- Acting as expert for the buyer in a warranty claim in the aviation industry. This involved providing an opinion on the merits of claims for breach of accounting warranties and quantifying potential losses incurred in the LCIA arbitration.
