Unfortunately, at times archaeological or historical resources play a role in litigation. SouthArc provides expert witness services for legal cases involving these resources. We can also provide documentation for land/water use investigations, previous land use history, and previous impacts to a property. This documentation assists in issues concerning land ownership, brownfields investigations, and land damages.
Our litigation support services include: archival research; preparation of expert witness reports, affidavits, exhibits and opinions; consultation with attorneys; critique/rebuttal of expert witness documents provided by opposing counsel; deposition testimony in support of client claims; investigative assistance for potentially responsible parties and cultural resource violations; cultural heritage management and resource protection; archival and on-site investigations; and damage assessment.
