Commercial

We have acted in many commercial disputes with values ranging from a few thousand to well over £10m, including business interruption, breach of contract and quantification of sums due under agency and other agreements

We have assisted insurers to bring claims against Parties who had caused business interruption losses at their insureds' businesses, and also in defending similar claims

In business interruption claims, we often demonstrate that the opposing expert's views are not supported by, or are contradicted by, available evidence

We have provided technical assistance to insurers and to Claimants in quantifying reasonable settlement figures for various classes of claim including loss of use of premises, machinery and vehicles

We value businesses for both contentious and non-contentious purposes

Cases we've been involved in include:

  • Business premises that were flooded, causing a loss of trade. The Claimant's solicitors made an offer to settle at the losses we calculated, rather than their expert's figure
  • Loss of profit claim due to failure by supplier to install equipment by due date
  • Several businesses where there was a loss of use of premises due to landlords' negligence - including various private members' clubs
  • Valuation of business and owners' interest in shareholder and partnership disputes
