BPM Adds Corporate Dispute Resolution Service Line to Advisory Practice

San Francisco-based BPM (FY15 net revenue of $82 million) has added a new service line: corporate dispute resolution.

BPM, also known as Burr Pilger Mayer, recognized its clients’ need for support surrounding dispute resolution. With deep expertise in forensic accounting, litigation support and mediated settlements, the team is able to positively influence disputes, contributing to fair settlements and positive outcomes for clients, the firm says.

“We understand that accomplishing business goals and objectives may require additional services which intersect with BPM’s traditional service areas,” says Edward Webb, leader of the firm’s corporate finance group.

“Our team of experts develop and provide individualized support – our primary goal is to help clients achieve their objectives while making sure they are more confident and comfortable in the process,” he adds.

Corporate dispute resolution falls outside the traditional parameters of accounting or consulting. Corporate disputes have the potential to damage businesses and can be very confusing and disruptive to business owners; BPM offers clients peace of mind while resolutions are in process.

“Above all else, we want to ensure our clients focus on what they do best: running their business,” adds Nick Steiner, chair of the firm’s advisory practice.

Under corporate dispute resolution, BPM provides assistance with forensic accounting and litigation support, ensuring high standards for detection, assessment and analysis. In addition, members of the team have specific mediation training and experience to help mitigate the complexities of bankruptcy and commercial litigation.
