Our services allow sureties to fix exposure, limit liabilities, maximize recovery, and reduce final costs.

    Software development and implementation contracts include highly technical deliverables requiring expertise and knowledge of industry standards to evaluate their fitness of purpose and ensure their successful delivery. DisputeSoft professionals can assist sureties and counsel in determining whether the parties are meeting their obligations with respect to project tasks, deliverables, and milestones.

    Default/Termination and Claims Analysis

    Using our expertise in project management and software engineering, we investigate the materiality, factual basis, and strength of each party’s claims and defenses. Our findings assist the surety and their counsel in determining whether the obligee’s claims meet thresholds for default. Should the claim result in litigation against the surety, we can efficiently transition to a testifying expert role.
