Litigation support

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway has a team of capable senior professionals with expertise in litigation and dispute resolution services. We are well aware of the benefits that a balanced, well considered opinion can contribute to early resolution of a dispute. We are equally aware of the need for litigants to have an early understanding of key weaknesses in loss assessments.

Our experts receive regular instruction from litigators to provide economic loss assessments and expert opinion on other commercial matters subject to litigation or dispute. They have appeared as expert financial witness before the courts and other dispute resolution forums for matters in dispute such as:

  • Economic loss arising from breach of contract
  • Business, share and intangible asset valuations for use in disputes involving misrepresentation in an M&A environment and prejudiced shareholder claims
  • Employment disputes
  • Relationship property valuations
  • Public Works Act 1981 compensation
  • Financial reporting and application of generally accepted accounting principles
  • Professional liability (taxation, audit and compliance accounting)
  • Director liability
  • Reckless trading
  • Business interruption claims
  • Asset tracing
  • Forensic accounting and fraud investigations
