Dispute Analysis & Litigation

Act with confidence when dealing with disputes

Tailored services to each case

Disputes are almost always driven by significant events in the life of a business and profound changes in markets and industries. PwC’s Dispute Advisory Services ensure that your organisation manages its disputes as an asset rather than just a potential loss, transforming challenges into opportunities.

As a global leader in providing dispute advisory services, PwC works with clients to establish the facts, analyse the issues and develop their dispute resolution strategy. Our specialist team provides advice on the financial, economic and valuation aspects of claims, assists clients through the dispute resolution process and provides independent expert testimony. We work on a wide range of disputes including litigation, arbitration, mediation, expert determination and regulatory matters.

Dispute Analyisis and Litigation

Services and solutions

PwC is well-placed to give you experienced, strategic and commercial advice on a vast range of disputes, taking into consideration your business sector.

We have recent experience with submitting evidence under the rules of major dispute resolution institutions including the ICC, UNCITRAL, LCIA and LMAA.

We help clients at all stages of the deal cycle, from preliminary due diligence and SPA support and valuations to purchase price negotiations and post-deal dispute resolution.

We help clients to anticipate and address issues arising from completion accounts and to achieve a favourable outcome.

PwC is frequently appointed as an independent expert (“Schiedsgutachter”) to resolve transaction disputes through the determination process or as an advisor to our clients as part of this mechanism.

Our industry subject matter experts apply economic theories and methods to determine losses caused by a behaviour or an event that is the subject of the litigation or dispute.

We assist clients during insolvency and restructuring litigation and dispute resolution.

We offer an evolving suite of sophisticated tools and techniques and a consistent global methodology to capture, preserve, interrogate and review data and metadata.
