Contractual agreements form the principal basis for most businesses and business relationships. After entering the contract, disputes may arise when the parties later disagree regarding the meaning and/or intention of certain terms, provisions, obligations or compensation due under the subject contract. If the parties cannot resolve the dispute at hand, it may result in arbitration proceedings or litigation in federal or state courts.

In addition to the legal and liability issues, contract disputes often result in a claim of monetary losses in the form of economic damages. Kroll’s professionals are accomplished and proficient experts in assisting outside counsel and their clients in calculating, evaluating and responding to all types of claims of contract damages, and successfully providing related expert testimony to the triers of fact.
