Appointed as an expert under the terms of a sale and purchase agreement to conclude on a number of contested items within the completion accounts of a manufacturing company. Our work required the interpretation of the relevant (and contradicting) terms of the sale and purchase agreement and the assessment of conflicting information provided by the parties. Our determination was final and binding and was issued within three months of our initial instruction.
Appointed as joint expert to determine the lost profits and replacement cost in respect of damage to a graphic designer’s portfolio. The case was referred by the Financial Ombudsman Service as there was no dispute over liability but the parties could not agree on the quantum. The case involved a number of contested areas and was difficult due to the poor quality of information provided by the claimant. We worked with legal counsel to clarify some of the legal aspects of the case and analysed the designer’s past profits and the future order book in order to quantify the true value of the loss.
Appointed as the expert under the terms of the articles of association to determine the valuation of a 30% interest in the holding company of a trading company operating in digital media consultancy. The valuation was made more complex by the significant fluctuation in income which was generated by one off projects and the existence of various share option schemes.
