Dealing with a dispute effectively is key to business success

PwC is an outright global leader in the ALM Vanguard for Disputes and Litigation Consulting 

“We’re thrilled to be recognised as an outright leader in the ALM Disputes and Litigation Consulting analysis. This reflects our long term investment in our global dispute resolution capability. We’ve been working with clients to help them deal with contentious matters in a strategic manner, addressing increasingly complex issues in an evolving global economy."  - John Fisher, PwC’s Global Disputes Leader.

The Disputes & Litigation (D&L) consultants covered in the ALM analysis help clients deal with complex litigation and arbitration. They possess capabilities in forensic analysis and expert-witness testimony, and demonstrate regulatory, industry, valuation, or transactions expertise. Moreover, they can apply those capabilities across borders.

John Fisher, PwC’s Global Disputes Leader, said: “While no one goes into business or enters into an agreement expecting to become embroiled in a conflict, most organisations will find themselves dealing with a dispute or controversy at some point. Our wide range of experience, from giving strategy advice to providing expert witness testimony on local and international disputes, arbitrations, and mediations all around the world means that we are ideally placed to help each and every one of our clients with their individual circumstances.”

Tomek Jankowski and Gabe Walle at ALM Intelligence noted that PwC were best in class for Management System and Enabling Tools capabilities, and also a leader in alternative dispute resolution.  

With regards to PwC’s Management System capabilities, they state that “PwC is well organised to pull in external resources to help its clients function on a day-to-day basis during what can be extremely disruptive events for their organisations.”

And here is what they had to say about PwC’s Enabling Tools capabilities:

“PwC brings to bear powerful forensic, data analytics, and technology tools, as well as process tools (e.g. PwC’s Negotiation Strategy Group, a valuable asset for arbitration.)”

The report also highlights that:  PwC “has a strong concentration of upstream risk assessment and management capabilities, which it is increasingly bringing downstream for post-event work.  PwC is also a leader in alternative dispute resolution. PwC’s thought leadership in D&L is particularly impactful, addressing pertinent issues such as court challenges to expert-witness testimony.”

John Fisher added:

”We can help organisations’ develop a robust resolution strategy, express their position in a compelling manner, and move to resolution as quickly as possible. This means they can get on with what they do best — running their business successfully.”
