Dispute Services

Strengthen your position

Deloitte Forensic works with businesses and their legal advisers across all types of dispute forums, in different jurisdictions and in a wide range of industries.

Drawing on our deep expert witness, financial analysis, damage quantification, and discovery capabilities, we can provide a host of services throughout what may be described as the ‘dispute time line’.

Our Expert Witness services are a key element of the dispute process, with quantum, that is, the ‘how much’ question, resting at the heart of any dispute. In addition, we can assist before a dispute process commences, for example, by bringing an accountant’s lens when considering one party’s actual performance against the contractual terms. We can provide pre-action advice around the likely areas of quantum, the mechanics and merits of potential heads of loss, evidential requirements to support the case and so on. We also act in an advisory capacity ahead of, or in parallel to, the separate instruction of an independent expert, as our clients often find it advantageous to explore elements of the claim in this way.

We work closely with our Forensic Technology team who are able to extract and organise both structured (i.e. databases, enterprise systems, etc.) and unstructured (i.e. email messages, audio files, etc.) data to provide the evidential basis of a claim, and have extensive experience of every stage of the electronic disclosure process.
