Providing valuable support
Our extensive experience enables us to provide valued support when it’s needed, whether you’re contemplating, planning or having subsequent issues with an M&A transaction, or you’re involved in a financial dispute, require a business valuation, face a regulatory enquiry or investigation, or have suspicions of fraud.
How can we help?
We can help you plan and prepare early so that we can identify and manage the risks and challenges of undertaking business and allow you to mitigate potential issues before they arise. We can also assist you in resolving these challenging and complex issues when such crises, conflicts and disputes occur. We specialise in the following:
- Commercial disputes
- M&A transaction issues
- Business valuations
- Private client
- Financial and regulatory risk & investigations
Our specialist team will find constructive solutions to corporate problems and give properly supported and independent expert opinions as required.
We have assisted clients in a wide variety of cases, acting as both adviser and expert, often working alongside legal practitioners, our BHP colleagues and other experts. This is regardless of whether they are corporates, shareholders, in a partnership, sole traders or individuals, and irrespective of whether they are claimants, defendants, buyers or sellers.
The team has also undertaken a range of instructions as single joint expert and acted as the independent expert determiner to adjudicate in completion accounts and share valuation disputes.
We are a highly skilled team with widespread experience gained within some of the world’s largest professional practices. We pride ourselves on our quality and integrity, providing clients with an honest and straightforward view whilst remaining commercially aware. As an independent firm, you will receive personalised, local service with minimal “Big Firm” problems such as regulatory and conflict issues.
