When disputes arise in a real estate, construction, redevelopment or environmental project that can only be resolved through legal proceedings, it is important to engage industry professionals with the expertise, poise and ability to present testimony in a clear, concise and confident manner.
Quite often, when preparing for trial, engaging with the right subject matter experts can have a major impact on your ability to defend a position or dispute the claims of your opponent.
As experienced, well respected leaders in subject areas such as brownfields, environmental modeling, geotechnical engineering, hazardous materials, industrial hygiene, remediation, stormwater and wastewater management, many of Ransom’s senior staff members have been called upon to provide testimony in a variety of court cases over the years.
Contrary to popular belief, the best expert witnesses are not necessarily “hired guns” but rather independent practicing professionals that are immersed in their areas of expertise every day.
In addition to having excellent subject matter knowledge, many of Ransom’s senior consultants also have the unique ability to simplify very complex technical terms and analyses (for judge and juries) when necessary – and calmly withstand aggressive cross examination by opposing interests.
