Disputes & Expert Testimony

In litigation, the testimony of an expert witness can mean the difference between winning and losing. Honesty, integrity and credibility — a well-qualified expert can provide a significant advantage in high-stakes litigation, arbitration and other types of disputes. We understand our client’s businesses as many of our professionals have worked as an owner, developer, construction manager, contractor, subcontractor, financial officer, controller or contracting officer.

Delta’s experts have an outstanding track record of testifying successfully before the courts and in arbitration proceedings in cases ranging from satellite defects litigation to complex international power plants. Our professionals have significant experience with a variety of disputes, including cost and scheduling overruns, accounting malpractice, excessive change orders, differing construction site conditions and contract compliance issues.

Many of Delta’s expert witness engineers, construction, and accounting experts hold advanced degrees and professional licenses and certifications in engineering, forensic accounting, project management, construction scheduling and cost estimating and have provided invaluable testimony and detailed expert reports in numerous high profile and complex cases.
