Eight International pursues its expansion and launches Delay Expert services, as part of its Forensic & Dispute Resolution network. This initiative, launched by Céline Leroy, head of Eight International Forensic & Dispute Resolution service line will be led by Vincent Lefeuvre, a delay expert, who joins from FTI Consulting who is a recognized authority in international arbitrage, notably in Europe and Brazil.
Vincent Lefeuvre has a proven experience in project delay analysis, risk analysis, technical performance analysis and economic damage quantification in global arbitrage cases.
Celine Leroy says:
“The implementation of this new service within our practice is consistent with our strategy to provide a comprehensive range of services in the field of financial and operational expertise to assist in the resolution of disputes and claims. Delay Expertise will allow us to complete the spectrum of our services so that we can cover all of our clients’ needs in terms of analyzing the repercussions of disputes in the management of “Major Projects” in infrastructure, construction, transport, etc. It brings real added value.”
This new service enables the practice to provide a fully comprehensive offering, in particular in international arbitrations, from the outset of a dispute between the Parties in the framework of the performance of a contract and up to final arbitration if no resolution has been found. In effect, delay expertise brings a complementary perspective to disputes by focusing on an analysis linked to delays and to technical aspects. This allows identification of the root of the problem and assigning liability in order to provide senior management with an independent analysis and quantification of the resulting damage.
Forensics & Dispute Resolution Network member organizations include Eight Advisory, FRP Advisory, New Deal Advisors, as well as Stout, a correspondent of Eight International in the United States.
