Case Study

Using high-tech tools to resolve an offshore dispute

We represented an engineering and construction firm in a complex construction dispute in Halifax, Nova Scotia, seeking $170 million in damages for breach of contract arising from the construction by our client of an offshore gas production facility for a leading North American energy producer. The case involved more than nine million documents and numerous witnesses in Kuala Lumpur, Monaco, the Netherlands, Houston, Halifax, and Calgary, among others.

The case involved more than nine million documents and numerous witnesses in Kuala Lumpur, Monaco, the Netherlands, Houston, Halifax, and Calgary, among others.

To increase efficiency, we implemented a state-of- the-art document/data processing and review system, resulting in more than $7 million in savings on document review costs. The system also improved communication and hands-on control over the data and its analysis as the case progressed, eventually reaching a favorable (confidential) outcome.
