Overview

BPM recognizes that when corporate disputes arise, either from external circumstances or internal matters, business leaders want to resolve the situation quickly, accurately and efficiently. Our deep expertise in forensic accounting, litigation support and mediated settlements allows us to contribute towards fair settlements and good outcomes for our clients. The uncertainty of corporate disputes can never be fully mitigated. The professionals at BPM can help bring peace of mind as resolutions are sought.

At BPM we believe in offering more holistic solutions when client needs go beyond traditional accounting or consulting services. We understand that big-picture business goals may intersect with additional service areas and require individualized support. Our clients can feel comfortable in the care of our team of experts, who possess ample industry experience and technical knowledge to help them successfully navigate any adverse side effects of that might arise in running their business.

Forensic Accounting and Litigation Support

When it comes to issues of inaccurate or misapplied accounting processes, trust and urgency are priorities. Whether caused by mistake or fraud, clients are looking for transparency and efficiency in the resolution process. Sometimes this process includes historical analyses to triage the results of disputed business decisions. Sometimes the development of future operating projections is required. The team at BPM works quickly and effectively to ensure high standards for detection, assessment and analysis.  We’ve assisted a range of companies, from emerging businesses to large corporations, with consistent and conservative forensic accounting. We also provide guidance in all phases of the dispute resolution process, from the original evaluation and strategy to discovery work, settlement negotiations, and expert testimony.

While our team of experts will not only work with you to determine whether fraud or mismanagement has occurred, they will also improve the business control environment to reduce the chance of recurrence or eliminate the possibility of similar incidents. We will work with you to integrate comprehensive controls that leverage your organization’s strengths and meaningfully improve your overall efficiency and security.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

To better serve our clients, BPM offers ADR services to help mitigate the complexities of bankruptcy, commercial litigation or arbitration. We understand that the legal world can seem intimidating. Sometimes settlement cannot be reached without professional assistance. At BPM we have professionals trained to the highest standards of mediation. Our goal is to ensure that both parties are in control of the outcome of their dispute, through an opt-in, cost-effective process that can result in a shared solution.

Our mediation services will help guide you through a complicated process and include:

  • Clearly understanding each party’s position
  • Creating an environment focused on resolution
  • Focusing settlement agreements and gaining the affirmation of all parties
  • Helping to identify and clarify steps to ensure compliance
