A Compelling Approach

The financial consequences of getting it wrong in business are not just about loss of revenue or having to pay out. How can you guard against the poor investment decisions, effects on growth, decline in asset value and lost business opportunities that might follow? One way is to consult a group of economists who know how markets work, understand the impact of unlawful practices and commercial disputes and can quantify the effects. We have helped claimants and defendants across the litigation/arbitration spectrum in commercial disputes, appeals against regulatory decisions and original-action competition complaints. We are experts in financial valuation and damages quantification, preparation of expert reports and advising during mediations; have dedicated sectoral teams; and work with all leading law firms and barrister chambers. This approach allows us to develop compelling cases and deliver best outcomes for our clients.
