When contentious business situations evolve into disputes and potential litigation, companies must turn not only to their legal advisors but to subject matter experts experienced in minimizing and resolving these negative situations.
Sirius Solutions has helped clients through their disputes in various ways from assessing damages to identifying and isolating crucial evidence to serving as expert witnesses. Clients find that our unique approach of leveraging cross functional teams with commercial expertise in the matter significantly strengthens their cases.
Key Offerings:We provide practical, scalable answers to legal problems in:
- Business Interruption
- Commercial Disputes
- Corporate Internal Investigations
- Intellectual Property
How We Engage: Should a business interruption occur, we are able to assemble a team of industry skilled and technology savvy experts who have the ability to assess if a public adjuster is the right choice for claims assistance, for example, or analyze if the accountants hired by an adjuster have our client’s best interest at heart.
When it comes to commercial disputes, we’re skilled at analyzing if a breach of contract has occurred and evaluating potential damages. We can assist with shareholder and purchase price disputes, asset valuation, royalty payments and lost profits.
For corporate internal investigations we’ve assisted with SEC and other regulatory examinations, inquiries and investigations, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and 404 internal controls issues. We’ve provided independent guidance in internal controls, FCPA, antitrust, anti-money laundering and special committee investigations. We can reconstruct events from imperfect data, unraveling complex financial transactions, and conduct due diligence and fact-gathering prior to a proposed transaction.
Intellectual property is more critical than ever in today’s innovation-obsessed economy. Our professionals can assist with all its phases from analyzing the development costs of IP assets, to negotiating technology transfers and licenses, to investigating intellectual property violations as well as royalty and compliance issues.
Finally, when it comes to litigation and disputes, our professionals have a strong track record of partnering with clients to deliver valuation solutions by serving as expert witnesses, evaluating closely-held companies for shareholder disputes, estate and gift tax purposes, and providing valuations related to derivatives, purchase price allocations and intangibles (ASC 815, 805 and 350). Our professionals have also provided fair valuation services in conjunction with IPOs and SEC reporting.
This experience, combined with our team of seasoned professionals possessing varied backgrounds, is why many companies turn to Sirius Solutions for subject matter expertise when they’re faced with contentious situations.
