Expert advice you can trust
As an individual, you may not have the support and structure around you that a company may ordinarily have. Alongside your legal practitioners, our BHP colleagues and other professionals, we can help support you with the following:
- Commercial disputes
- M&A transaction issues
- Business valuations (e.g. matrimonial, probate, succession planning)
- Criminal matters (e.g. confiscation proceedings)
- Financial and regulatory risk & investigations
- Other legal proceedings
We can undertake investigatory and confirmatory analysis of business interests, assessment of business liquidity, and prepare valuations for use in probate and estate issues, matrimonial and other family court matters, and in succession planning. We also act in criminal matters dealing with both substantive financial issues and with derivative actions such as confiscation proceedings. We understand and are happy to work to the requirements of the criminal and family courts and of the Court of Protection.
We often act as an adviser, working alongside legal practitioners to help clients understand the strength of their position, meaning clients are more informed during discussions and negotiations before any formal proceedings. Similarly, we can also assist clients once formal proceedings have begun and, if appropriate, work alongside legal practitioners and other experts to support clients as a party expert, as well as provide expert evidence to Courts and tribunals.
We prepare structured and properly reasoned independent CPR/CrPR/FPR compliant (if required) reports with clear and transparent opinions, and have over 30 years’ experience in giving evidence to Courts and Arbitral tribunals as well as representing clients in mediations and other ADR processes.
