litigation support | covec
Though we try hard to find negotiated solutions, litigation is a fact of life. In such cases, Covec can supply expert testimony, locate other experts, work with solicitors and barristers to formulate the case, and attend hearings for the purpose of cross-examination. Whether you need a short, focussed brief or a full and detailed analysis, we can help.
