Commercial disputes may arise from a number of different situations, with the most common disputes relating to business purchase and sale activity, changes to shareholding or partnerships, insurance and banking provisions and contractual disputes. 

It is common for losses to be incurred as a result of breach of contract, intellectual property disputes, natural disasters, professional negligence, regulatory disputes or compulsory purchase orders. In all such cases, accurate valuations, taking into account aspects such as tax implications, are essential.

Throughout our practice we regularly undertake valuations for a wide range of purposes, including acquisitions and disposals, taxation, regulatory matters, as well as in support of commercial litigation cases. 

In addition to using a variety of standard methodologies and techniques, our teams use their specific experience and apply their judgment, meaning our valuations are well-researched and unique to each case.
