Complex economic and legal issues often overlap in litigation. Our litigation advisory experts help make sense of complex matters quickly and can advise on strategies that will support favourable case outcomes.

We draw upon our experienced team of accounting, data analytics, economic, finance, governance, and taxation experts who have extensive experience in litigation matters. Our team has first-hand experience managing large scale litigation matters across multiple jurisdictions in Australia, Asia, Europe, and the United States.

Unlike traditional forensic accounting practices that are focused on accounting, we bring together a range of technical skills, litigation experience, and thinking styles, allowing our clients to make unique and creative arguments.

Our team of experts work in partnership with you during the early stages of a dispute to assess information needs, identify relevant and robust scientific frameworks, perform preliminary analysis, identify and evaluate the strengths of arguments, and propose case strategies. If the case proceeds, our team can assist with finding the right expert and prepare briefing materials and instructions. We understand the time-intensive nature of litigation and deliver high quality and timely insights.

We identify the crux of the matter quickly and reveal case blind spots. Our experts can help you:

  • Identify the right conceptual frameworks and analytical techniques so that case resources can be deployed efficiently
  • Anticipate opposing conceptual frameworks and arguments (and the strengths of those arguments) so that informed decisions can be made before committing and allocating resources to a case
  • Provide upfront feedback on potential areas of investigation and analysis that may be ineffective

Our team uses versatile and proven analytical frameworks early in a matter to streamline case development and minimise risks, including:

  • Generating conceptual and evidence-based arguments
  • Preparing quantum estimation models to not only assess the value of a case, but also to ascertain if the case is worth progressing
  • Assessing liability and loss causation arguments using advanced analytics techniques

Big data and analytics can expand the breadth of evidence in litigation. We help you identify information needs at an early stage to support efficient data gathering and strategy formulation.
