How can Aptum help?
Aptum, its directors, and wider team have significant experience in a broad range of professional negligence claims involving financial advisers, auditors, accountants, lawyers and other professional advisors.
Through its experience, Aptum has developed a deep knowledge and understanding of the critical issues affecting the scope of a professional’s duties, the difficulties associated with establishing how negligent advice has caused loss, and a proven ability to work with experts to ensure the best possible outcomes on loss assessment and valuations.
Aptum is a market leader in facilitating funding solutions to allow claimants to prosecute, or share the risk of prosecuting, professional negligence claims.
One of Aptum’s founding values is to provide greater transparency and certainty in the legal profession. Across various industries, we are frequently engaged to investigate issues relating to fraud, breaches of duty of care, misleading advice, and negligent valuations.
What Makes Aptum Different
“As strangers to the Australian legal system, and indeed litigation funding, we probably weren’t the easiest guys to deal with. But Aptum made the process clear and there were no surprises.”- Martin Fine (Director)
Contesting a business valuation
An investor in an early-stage business had been forced out through a compulsory share buyout in what presented as an undervalued share price, and came to Aptum to initiate a substantial professional negligence claim against the large accounting firm who had conducted the business valuation.
Aptum reopened the valuation to provide our client with a voice in the process, ensuring a fair amount was received based on their interest in the business.
Aptum also worked closely with a litigation funder and provided certainty in pricing to our client, and achieved the outcome within 12 months of issuing proceedings.
