Litigation Support Services

Legal teams rely on experts to sift through the documents of a project that is headed for litigation, arbitration, or mediation -- to help them fortify their position with facts. These facts must be clear, concise and objective. The duty of the expert is to present these facts in terms that can be readily understood. Often the difference between success and failure can be found in subtle distinctions, or the proper interpretation of the available documentation.
