Our Litigation & Insurance Practice provides a broad array of investigative, forensic and failure analysis services to the legal profession.
CTLGroup has provided technical support to the legal and insurance industries in cases that range from functional failures to catastrophic structural collapse. Our work has included the investigation of damage due to terrorist attacks, structural system and component failures, and seismic and dynamic structural forces. The firm has also handled cases dealing with issues of construction material failures and durability, serviceability failures, construction delays and defects, and design professional standards of care.
CTLGroup offers legal and litigation support for traditional dispute resolution, as well as assistance with alternate dispute resolution methods. We understand the legal profession’s special requirements and can clearly communicate the technical issues of a case – in consultation with counsel, in depositions, and in court. Using computer modeling and visualization software, CTLGroup can illustrate the pertinent facts of the case and create informative exhibits and demonstrative evidence.
