Litigation Support

Cost Effective Litigation Support Services 

When you experience a catastrophic incident or suffer a major loss, you quickly recognize the need for an expert to help determine what happened, preserve evidence, deliver factual reports, and provide expert testimony.  The IFO Group stands ready to serve your needs for arbitration or litigation.  Our team of expert consultants have considerable experience in deposition and courtroom testimony in both civil and criminal cases. 

IFO Group offers cost-effective litigation support services for a full range of dispute resolution scenarios. We understand the intricacies of the litigation process and how the roles filled by investigators and expert witnesses are leveraged to help promote successful outcomes. The Certified Fire and Explosion investigators on our team are well versed in the application of NFPA 921 and NFPA 1033 and can present their opinions clearly and effectively even when confronted by aggressive and hostile cross-examination.

Additionally, to support any type of litigation scenario, IFO Group has a climate-controlled inspection laboratory and workshop to facilitate the inspection and documentation of collected evidence and artifacts.  We provide onsite short- or long-term secure evidence and artifact storage that is managed in accordance with ASTM Methods E1459-13E1492-11
