Disputes

Commercial disputes
Any matter that involves a forensic analysis of the financial issues being contested is within our standard range of work.
We are particularly experienced in disputes arising in the SME sector and can offer a low cost solution to solicitors who need critical financial information and analysis for their clients.
We accept appointments on a Single Joint Expert and a  Shadow Expert basis.
Recent cases:
*
Complex share valuation to enable the court to decide whether to reject an application to set aside a statutory demand.
* Shareholder dispute involving allegations of illegal dividend payments , invalid share transfers and diverted sales turnover. Resolved through mediation.

Expert determination
Disputes between vendors and buyers following a business disposal on an earn out basis are frequently resolved by expert determination. Usually, the provisions relating to such an appointment are set out in the business sale agreement and Graham Salmon is happy to accept appropriate instructions. Being a smaller firm we are rarely conflicted out of acting for both parties and we have sound experience in these cases.
Recent case:
*
Acted as a jointly appointed expert to provide a determination on the final instalment of  consideration due on an earn out in the aggregates and minerals sector

Personal / fatal injury
The calculation  of the loss to the injured party and his/her family is the key to every claim. No two cases are the same and this is an area where substantial experience is required. We have that across a wide range of business and occupation sectors.
Recent cases:
*
Substantial experience in this area, producing reports and calculations for claimants in a wide variety of occupations – self employed and employed.

We offer a quick turnaround of cases and operate on a nationwide basis.
