Dispute resolution is the common term that references a range of situations that involve controversy, such as matrimonial disputes, corporate disputes, partnership disputes, or other disagreements between parties that we can address through litigation, mediation or arbitration.

We all know what a dispute is. Most of us encounter arguments, disagreements, or conflicts with friends, family, business colleagues and others every day. But when the dispute takes place in a setting whereby a legal business or personal relationship is involved, the resolution may require sophisticated factfinding and negotiation skills. Uniquely trained professionals assist with seeking an outcome that is mutually satisfactory for the parties involved. Resolution of disputes often requires the use of forensic and valuation professionals to identify and quantify the unique aspects of each party’s position, and apply an objective viewpoint to cut through the noise and reach a settlement.

Matrimonial Disputes

While a marital dispute may begin as a private family matter, the final solution is usually influenced by the professional and financial complications that arise during disagreements of this nature. Rarely does the discourse take place between the divorcing couple alone. So if the threat of litigation is raised, the negative tone and demands of the situation may quickly evolve to include the need for a forensic accounting expert. Understanding the financial aspects of a marital dispute is extremely important.
