Getting businesses back to business.
BDO’s Transaction Advisory professionals assist clients in resolving a wide variety of M&A and post-acquisition disputes, serving as neutral accounting arbitrators, consultants, and expert witnesses. With deep industry experience and the resources of one of the world’s largest accounting and consulting firms, we help clients to navigate and understand the numerous issues facing their businesses.
As a national accounting firm, we are often asked to serve as arbitrators. Our professionals work with both parties to establish processes, analyze submissions, preside over hearings, and present decisions. Our professionals have particularly significant experience with post-closing purchase price adjustments, including net working capital calculations and earn-out computations.
Often our professionals serve in a consulting role where we prepare written submissions, present interim and closing financial statements, and evaluate submissions by opposing parties. Frequently, we also work with counsel to identify and prepare testifying witnesses, sometimes from BDO itself. With experience serving as witnesses in trial, arbitration, and mediation, our partners and senior practitioners present testimony in a reliable and credible manner.
