If alternative pathways to resolution lead to unacceptable outcomes, or when relations between contracting parties break down, litigation may be unavoidable. Often the issue is of high significance for at least one side, and the stakes rise with the risk of reputational as well as financial damage from the ruling and legal costs. Whatever the litigant’s confidence of success, the onus must be on constructing a truly robust case, clearly evidenced and presented – a challenge that increases with project complexity.

How our litigation support expert services can help

Our litigation support experts analyse claims and provide all necessary technical support for clients and their legal counsel.

The diverse skills of this multi-disciplined team are critical in developing the strongest possible case. Our consultants’ vast experience of preparing and rebutting claims for additional payments and time extensions ensures that our analysis of a client’s position is objective and credible.

Spanning the technical/legal divide, our litigation support experts can draw on the resources needed to speed up analysis and investigation. Highly qualified specialists are on hand to analyse the causes and impacts of delay, disruption or sub-standard quality. Practical project experience and insight from claims consulting quickly bring the most telling issues in a dispute into focus.

Our litigation support services use dedicated IT and graphics to make otherwise complex and tangled issues clear. This also helps ensure that clients minimise the risk of mounting a case that will fail when exposed to close scrutiny.

Our input bolsters the underlying research and structure of a claim or defence, maximising the prospect of a favourable settlement or determination.

As part of our litigation support services, we:

  • Provide strategy and technical advice
  • Prepare issue files and requests for admission
  • Answer and prepare interrogatories
  • Assist in depositions
  • Present claims analysis through expert reports
  • Provide expert witness testimony.
