Valuations in a complex business environment

In almost every commercial dispute, it is the valuation of certain assets – or the value of the business itself – that is often the greatest point of contention between parties. As a result, many organisations are now seeking robust and well-reasoned valuation analysis by independent specialists for potential or pending disputes.

Operating in multiple legal jurisdictions, gaining access to economies at different stages of development and understanding cultural differences are all adding complexity to the business agenda. Along with this, the business environment is becoming more litigious, and investors are increasingly seeking growth through joint ventures and partnerships; the drafting and subsequent interpretation of valuation clauses remains a key area of contention and subjectivity.

To navigate this complex environment, we bring an in-depth understanding of commercial disputes and litigation advice to deliver reliable valuation opinions. We have extensive experience in producing well-reasoned valuation analysis and real-world deal advice.
