Let us help 

With the largest valuation practice in Australia, we’re working on some of the largest and most complex client matters, solving in unexpected ways to drive sustained outcomes in a dynamic deals environment. Whether driven by regulation, commercialisation, or legislation—we bring more to the table to help clients remain relevant and realise the true value of their business through challenging and changing market conditions.

Our comprehensive suite of solutions include:

Value consulting

Value consulting at PwC is a specialised service that empowers organisations to extract the most value out of their business and realise its full potential. We provide strategic guidance on capital asset expenditure, bringing innovation into programs of work to maximise value. We also uncover and commercialise existing innovations to create new sources of income.

Our expertise in strategy, finance, operations, deals, tax and accounting enables us to go wide and take the long view to ensure sustained outcomes for the future. However
we go beyond the traditional consulting model, providing expert advice on the full value spectrum – from strategy ideation for large capital decisions to development of the commercial model and the execution needed to make it a success.

As part of the PwC global network, we can access experts across all sectors and business imperatives, including carbon reduction and how to reach net zero goals.
By using advanced technology, such as AI, machine learning and cutting-edge analytics, we can rapidly build value chain scenarios and easily communicate them to stakeholders.

We take pride in building business resilience, making sure organisations are future-fit to face whatever the future may bring. 

How we can help:

  • Value optimisation.
  • Capital Program strategy and support (capability mapping, commercial model, innovation road mapping, ESG advisory and integration).
  • Intellectual Property (IP) identification and commercialisation.

Dispute advisory

Dispute Advisory at PwC helps organisations navigate and resolve conflicts in the business environment. These may be commercial disputes, contractual disagreements, class actions, regulatory issues, or financial disputes. 

Where there is a difference of opinion on business value, losses suffered by a business that need to be quantified, or assistance needed for court, we can help. We can work directly with an organisation, or with their independent legal teams providing independent and shadow expert advice.

We are a senior team of highly experienced practitioners, known for our credibility in court, with deep sector knowledge and experience across a range of industries, including emerging Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges. We have worked on many of the world’s largest and most complex disputes.

Adept at navigating the high pressure nature of disputes and the need for timeliness, we use advanced technology to bring greater efficiency and ease to the process. Our market-leading Decision Analytics Platform (DAP) rapidly digests and analyses large volumes of data from varied sources and data types, and presents it in a consolidated, interactive and easy-to-understand way. 

We understand the need for clear, quality reporting and analysis that is ‘true’. Whether the dispute ends up in court or not, our aim is to find a practical and fair resolution for clients, to restore confidence and peace of mind.

How we can help:

  • Dispute resolution (commercial, contractual disagreements, class actions, regulatory issues, financial disputes). 

  • Quantification of loss and damages (loss of profits and loss of opportunity arising from misleading and deceptive conduct, IP theft, business interruption, project delays, compulsory acquisition, wage underpayment, completion account disputes). 

  • Dispute valuation of businesses, shares, financial instruments, intangible assets.

  • Shadow expert services.
