We offer practical advice to assist with the successful resolution of disputes

Disputes are an inevitable byproduct of doing business that have an impact on businesses and individuals. The volume and complexity of regulations, coupled with the growing costs of resolving disputes, uncertainty of outcomes, and lengthy proceedings are all litigation-related challenges facing organizations today.

Assessing disputes

As disputes arise, it is important to gather the critical facts, independently assess the strengths and weaknesses of your organization's position, and develop a plan of action. Financial disputes can involve complex economic, financial and technical issues as well as multiple languages, client locations and applicable laws and standards. Litigants with a command of the issues and a sound assessment of each side's position can achieve better outcomes, whether in settlement or in litigation. That is where KPMG's Dispute Advisory Services can help.
