Litigation Support / Expert Analysis

Given the complex nature of litigation and dispute analysis, it is necessary to understand all angles of questions presented. While plaintiffs and defendants tend to focus most of their time on a single perspective, it is imperative that expert research, analysis and testimony consider the position of both the plaintiff and the defendant. We have long maintained a position of independence, which we feel is critical to our litigation support practice. Our team of experts has technical and real-world expertise in a broad range of topics and has put those skills to work for plaintiffs and defendants. Our experts maintain strict confidentiality, professionalism and diligence on all assignments. Internal databases and proprietary market research provide our experts with an edge over others in the field.

Public Policy Analysis

Public policy decisions can impact a community's largest corporations and its youngest citizens. They create the rules by which our society functions; and, like our economy, they are constantly evolving. Everyday governments make choices regarding how and where development will take place; where roads, parks, and police stations will be built; or how social programs will be funded. Elected officials, staff and management are forced to pool limited resources to evaluate the merit of difficult options - with the potential to impact millions. Public policy impacts are rarely limited to the monetary outcome on their surface. Rather, the economic and social impacts of a decision can often create the more substantial policy implication. We attempt to take a more holistic approach to public policy analysis hoping to create a clearer picture of how the agency, policy, or other change will impact our client and our community.
