BWA’s experience in business disputes includes defective products, anti-trust pricing, mortgage fraud, misappropriation of funds, interference of business dealings, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract, among others.

In disputes involving economic damages, BWA’s forensic accounting professionals begin with an analysis of the business transactions supporting the damages. From there, our professionals:

  • Identify relevant sources of information needed for investigation and analysis including, testimony, third-party records, company records and industry/market research,
  • Calculate or rebut claimed economic damages through detailed analysis of available data,
  • Communicate results of our analysis in a clear and easily understood manner both in written report format and as an expert witness.

In cases of breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of funds, and interference of business dealings, BWA’s experts perform comprehensive studies of the underlying causes and effects of complex business transactions. Failure to act may result in greater losses.
