Commercial disputes can be extremely complex, lengthy and costly to resolve, so at BTG Advisory we will ensure that our expertise is used to provide you with a proficient and timely service.
Commercial disputes are sometimes unavoidable in business. However, our team of forensic accountants use their expert financial knowledge to provide in-depth analysis of all information relevant to a commercial dispute to reach a resolution whether the matter progresses to court or not.
Our team has experience right across the gamut of commercial disputes, adopting a personalised approach to identify the key information and issues in a case. This ensures that all relevant analysis and reporting is both meticulously and efficiently undertaken. From this we can make a fair and robust examination of the case and provide an impartial assessment of the issues.
Commercial disputes often centre on financial incongruities and our team has extensive experience in providing forensic accounting services to assess the issues in cases, including:
- Business Valuations
This includes providing forensic accounting provision relating to cases regarding Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPOs), business extinguishment and shareholder and partnership disputes.
- Breach of Contract
As contract law permeates through all levels of business, breaches of contract can seem inevitable. Our specialist team of forensic accountants are able to quantify the financial ramifications of contractual breaches.
- Lending Disputes
Forensic accounting is paramount in resolving lending disputes, such as fraudulent applications and false invoicing.
- Shareholder and Partnership Disputes
Our forensic accountants hold specific expertise in providing the detailed financial information required to resolve shareholder and partnership disputes.
- Due Diligence
As part of the sale/acquisition process, due diligence must be exercised when assessing a company’s net assets. Our forensic accounting services will ensure that due diligence is thoroughly undertaken.
- Loss of Profits
Our specialist forensic accountancy services can accurately calculate losses resulting from commercial damage via lost profits or lost asset value models.
Cases of commercial negligence often require the services of a specialist forensic accountant to fully ascertain the financial and liability implications.
- Business Interruption
Commercial disputes can be time-consuming as well as costly. We are able to fully and fairly assess the consequential financial losses due to these and other causes of business interruption.
Once the evidence has been gathered and presented in a report capable of withstanding rigorous scrutiny in court, our team is then able to guide you through the various methods of commercial dispute resolution. These can include our forensic accountants providing alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mediation, expert determination or progressing the matter to court and guiding you through this complex process.
