Our dispute support work

Sometimes things do not quite go as expected. Economics can play a key role in putting wrongs to right.

Our expertise in economics, finance, and statistical and econometric techniques means that Frontier is able to provide the high quality support that clients require in managing disputes effectively – whether in litigation, arbitration or alternative dispute resolution environments.

The ability to bring empirical evidence to bear in testing or supporting claims for loss or damage – using statistical and econometric techniques where appropriate – is one of our core capabilities. These include financial analysis, modelling, valuing, risk analysis, econometrics and contract design.  From the statistical analysis of demand to the financial implications of transfer pricing, we provide clients with detailed and accurate valuations and estimates of lost profit.

We are frequently called on to provide expert reports and testimony to support clients in formulating and developing evidence for their case as well as assessing and responding to evidence from the various parties to a dispute. Our consultants are experienced in writing witness statements and are able to present ideas logically, fluently and concisely. We work alongside clients and their legal advisors, advising on submissions, responses and tactics.

Frontier Economics, and Philip Williams in particular, are in the select group of the very best expert economists in Australia, both as independent experts working under the Federal Court rules and for behind-the-scenes strategic assistance. They are accessible and responsive, have a broad experience of many industries and transactions, and, most importantly, understand the Australian legal context in which their evidence and reports are to be used.
