Even after careful negotiation, contracts can lead to disputes between the parties owing to differences in interpretation. For example, an alteration to the responsibilities in the area covered by the contract may, over time, give rise to fundamentally different understandings. These can lead to unpleasant, time-consuming and costly disputes. We support companies as they navigate this territory with advice, analyses and expert opinions for finding the best solution, both in out-of-court and in-court proceedings and in arbitration.
No matter which way a company chooses to settle disputes, we stand ready to assist, both in out-of-court and in-court proceedings and in arbitration. Our experts are also active in the field themselves – as moderators, mediators, members of arbitration panels or as arbitration experts or arbitrators in out-of-court alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings.
Close cooperation within our international PwC network enables us to provide skilled assistance to companies in cross-border litigation.
With our experience and expertise, we give companies the ability to act with confidence when dealing with unpleasant, time-consuming and costly disputes between contracting parties. Court-ready, factual documentation and expert opinions prepared by us help to accelerate decision-making in both in-court proceedings and alternative conflict resolution. They also save time and money. Moreover, our support increases the likelihood that claims can be successfully asserted or rebutted, as the case may be.
