Business disputes can arise anywhere in the world, in multiple circumstances. Organizations may encounter litigation with competitors, suppliers, customers, employees and other stakeholders. In these disputes, seeking help early from a financial professional may increase your chances of a settlement or gaining the upper hand at trial. A financial professional can provide objective opinions on technical, financial matters that require specialized knowledge or experience that members of the court may not possess.

The article was written by Robert Martin, a partner in the Advisory Services practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada, and a member of the Dispute Analysis & Valuations group.
