Valuations in commercial disputes

The need for valuations expertise covers a wide range of commercial disputes including contractual claims, shareholder and partnership disputes, post-acquisition disputes and intellectual property disputes.

Parties to a commercial dispute may need to assess the value of share capital or assets, quantify potential damages or rebut any claimed damages. The stakes can be high, which makes the choice of a valuations expert a critical decision for the success of a case.

Working with an expert who can explain complex valuation principles in accessible terms and provide clear advice on the best way to proceed is crucial to the favourable outcome of a case.
