Assisting in addressing legal disputes and litigation challenges
No matter how successful your business relationships are, you can never guarantee that no claims, disputes or litigation will be initiated against your business. In such cases, we help review and estimate potential damages. We also provide expert witness testimony. Our team efficiently analyses the financial, economic and business implications of disputes and litigation within Russia and abroad.
We collaborate with experts from across the global PwC network of firms, focusing on certain industries or processes, such as damage estimates or construction stage analysis.
Our team has extensive litigation experience within Russia and globally: We can analyse various types of incurred damages, estimate their potential value and provide expert testimony. We prepare expert reports and provide expert testimony in compliance with the rules set out by the leading dispute settlement institutions, including ICC, LCIA, ICSID and SCC.
We assess the financial implications of violations related to transactions including: non-compliance with the terms of cooperation agreements and guarantees under purchase-and-sale agreements, and violations in the preparation of completion accounts. Our specialists act on a regular basis as independent experts to provide a single binding expert opinion on the subject of dispute and litigation.
Our team has extensive experience in analysing critical factors that cause project implementation delays, affect project management or underlie similar disputes. We provide support to our clients when contractual terms are amended and when our clients require a review, clarifications on changes in planned project parameters and assessment of their impact on the project’s financial results.
When defining a legal strategy and subsequently during the litigation process, it is important to have complete information on the parties involved. We carry out integrity and affiliation due diligence and perform a search of assets in the jurisdictions of the parties involved in the litigation.
Equipped with the most advanced IT solutions, our specialists collect, analyse data that can be used as evidence in litigation. Our IT solutions enable external authorised users to obtain access to and analyse data in compliance with local laws in various jurisdictions.
