We know the difference between a hopper dredge, a hydraulic dredge, and a mechanical dredge. We understand the production capabilities of various dredges and the technologies that are involved in the dredging process. Our Group is also familiar with the issues unique to the dredging industry that create havoc for contractors, and we are prepared to guide our clients through these issues. Additionally, members of our Group formerly worked for the Corps of Engineers, the agency that designs and awards nearly every federal dredging project.
Although our lawyers have been involved in leading dredging cases that have been decided by the boards of contract appeals and the courts, our strategy is to settle without litigation whenever possible. We have the technical knowledge to present the data needed to support requests for equitable adjustment and technological changes.
