Expert Witness Services

Deloitte has extensive experience in providing Expert Witness Services across a range of disputes and industries. We work with law firms and directly with our clients to provide independent, objective Expert Witness Services. We assess the quantum of a specific claim and/or give evidence in cases on liability involving alleged accounting or audit negligence.

Our Expert Witness Services are effective throughout the different stages of a dispute, from advising clients in the preliminary stages to providing expert evidence for a Court or Tribunal. Our expert witness arguments often help our clients to negotiate early settlements. If disputes continue into litigation, our team is experienced in giving expert evidence in Court or before a Tribunal.

Our specialists can work with you in areas such as:

  • Breach of contract.
  • Asset expropriation.
  • Purchase price disputes.
  • Intellectual property.
  • Anti trust.
  • Loss of profits quantification.
  • Business interruption.
  • Information technology disputes.
  • Financial Services disputes.

We also assist litigators with electronic disclosure of documents and other evidence, utilising our Forensic Technology skills and tools.
