In the moment you get involved in a litigation, the focus has changed from finding how to solve the problem to finding who to blame for the problem.
For each party involved, it is very common to overestimate the strength of its position and to underestimate the costs and duration of the litigation as well as the amount of internal resources needed to support the legal team.
When you are in a litigation, you are spending money AND you are not solving the problem that put the transformer out of service. Therefore, it is important to end the litigation successfully as soon as possible.
The fastest way out of a litigation is a negotiated agreement. However, a good agreement must be based on proper technical understanding of what went wrong. This way, you can negotiate with the knowledge of your real position in the dispute, and you understand what is needed to solve the problem and put the transformer back in service.
In this situation, you can count on my status as an internationally recognized expert to get professional, independent, and confidential advice without having to strain your internal resources.
Our transformer consultants can provide our service to one party or, when there is agreement for a rapid conclusion, to all parties.
If the litigation continues, then we can support your legal team in presenting technical arguments in a way which is understandable to people outside the engineering profession.
