Our Five Lenses analytical model allows us to distil the complex facets of a dispute into an NPV-based economic and collateral analysis, assessing options and trade-offs for effective dispute management and optimum recovery.
This service may be used both by clients actively assessing and managing disputes and by investors and insurers as a valuable component of investment underwriting.
Intelligence What are the circumstances around the investment, including relevant agreements, parties, sequence of events, and any faults in the conduct of business? Are there additional factors that the client might not already understand that has given rise to a contentious situation?
Legal What dispute resolution mechanism is contained in the agreements, and what are the statistical probabilities associated with that course of action? Can legal counsel advise any additional options for legal recourse?
Financial What value can the client demonstrate that he or she is owed? How should a recovery in the future be discounted to the present? Should the client consider litigation funding, insurance or other forms of risk-hedging?
Geopolitical How have local power dynamics created the conditions for a dispute? Does the local economic context, or do local stakeholders, have any bearing on efficacy of a recovery?
ReputationalIs the client comfortable that the dispute could be made public? What is the correct framing for the matter? How does the client leverage transparency for better resilience?
