Thorough investigation by knowledgeable professionals

Establishing fault in construction cases often requires specialized knowledge of industry practices and standards.

We employ state-of-the-art diagnostics and analyses to fortify your case.

Mediation and arbitration services

Often parties can avoid expense and delay by mediating disputes about provisions in construction contracts.
