The forensic accountants input to contract disputes can be tailored to fit the requirements of each case. Some cases will require advice on the merits of pursuing or defending claims for breach of contract or misrepresentation, or advice on the different potential outcomes in advance of a mediation, whereas others will require a full independent report on the quantum aspects of the case, in preparation for trial.
Our team have a wide range of experience of advising on contract disputes and can bring this experience to bear when advising on matters. Often disputes arise following breach of contract and the contract itself will guide the parties on the appropriate method of dispute resolution. This may include expert determination, arbitration or mediation.
We are regularly appointed as expert determiner to resolve such disputes and are recognised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and Academy of Experts registers for expert determination appointments.
If you or your client have a dispute and would like an independent expert to review the situation, we would be happy to advise. Please contact us today to discuss this further
