WHY VERTEX

MEGAPROJECT EXPERTS THAT TALK THE TALK AND WALK THE WALK

Because we are a traditional AEC firm that also offers forensic solutions, we practice what we preach. We offer expert services on megaprojects and high-profile real estate and other property or construction claims throughout the globe. Our claims experts offer standard of care, delay, damage, allocation, and environmental opinions on complex disputes and government contracts. We also help clients assess and allocate liabilities, and evaluate plaintiff declarations to determine reasonable costs.

VERTEX's services that support construction claims often include failure analysis, evaluation of the status of completion of a construction or design project at the time of the default, and review and analysis of contracts against claims for the cost of finishing interrupted construction projects. If you are an attorney or in-house counsel with cases involving design claims, construction claims, property development claims, environmental claims, safety claims, commercial damages, or government contract matters, VERTEX has your expert witness.

Our expert witnesses have been an integral part of the legal team with construction claims from sureties, suppliers and subcontractors, designers, owners, and developers. We have been successful in bringing favorable settlements to every type of construction claim including infrastructure such as roadways and rail-transit development, military bases, schools and higher education developments, industrial and chemical sites, and commercial and public buildings just to name a few.
