When faced with a significant explosion, fire, release, or spill, decision makers must respond quickly on multiple fronts to diverse, complex issues that demand timely decisions and decisive action.

Although historically paper and hard-copy file driven, today the vast bulk of discovery is electronic based—email, electronic documents, spreadsheets, databases, social media and data in the cloud. With the significant increase in the volume of electronic data held by companies over the last twenty years, discovery, particularly e-discovery, has become even more significant to the outcome and cost of litigation. We have experience assisting clients with discovery, including the use of new tools and contacts in e-discovery.
We support owners planning mega projects by developing business cases aligned with their long-term strategic objectives, by ensuring rapid and effective decision making through our proprietary tools, and by performing key analyses to monitor the progress, economics, and risk associated with projects. more
