When energy projects fail, you know the case can rest or fall on expert testimony.

So why is it so hard to find the right experts who know both how to uncover the details that matter most and how to write reports and present their testimony on the stand?

Our team will give you and your client confidence that you’re going into proceedings with the most reliable insights, benchmarked against our PRIMA methodology. Our experts have experience across mediation, arbitration and litigation for lawyers representing field operators, EPCs and other contractors and investment firms.

Technical expertise and insight

Unlike big consultancy firms, Epeus is an active industry player. We’ve been involved in more than 200 industry projects spanning almost 20 years making our knowledge directly relevant. Our core business is still Project Risk Management. So, unlike professional expert witnesses, we keep our knowledge base up to date.

You’re in good company

We serve law firms such as Morgan Lewis, Clyde & Co, Wikborg Rein, Stephenson Harwood, HFW, Haynesboone, DLA Piper and Slaughter & May.

We only contribute where we know we can make a difference, so we’re always careful to evaluate the projects we are asked to undertake before accepting the job. Sometimes, we have to decline opportunities when we are conflicted.
