Sureties and insurers in the construction industry can require advice and support across a broad spectrum of services. Some of
these will be unique to their respective roles, while others may intersect with the requirements of project owners, contractors, or
lawyers. We can work with you to:
Armed with extensive industry knowledge and years of experience, we can help ensure that the proper administrative, cost, and scheduling controls are put in place. We bring appropriate measures to maintain the best interests of the surety through the course of construction.
Drawing on our team’s cross-sector capacity in forensic engineering and dispute resolution, as well as our extensive experience in surety claims, we can offer our clients and partners a wealth of support in the area of performance and payment bond claims. We are experts in assembling claims for overpayment, differing site conditions, added scope, cardinal changes, delays damages, loss of productivity and wrongful termination, among others. We are also skilled in rebutting claims asserted against sureties and their principals.
The nature of builder risk insurance policy claims is varied and unpredictable. Our forensic analysis and reporting capabilities can help sureties and insurers drill down to the true objective nature of the claim to determine its merit and value. Our experts help insurance companies understand the status of the entire project at the time of the loss. We focus on assessing whether the contractor was on track to meet project completion milestones, and what work could continue unimpacted by the loss. By reviewing pre-loss schedules, site inspection photos, daily logs, and other project documentation, we can determine when the project was scheduled to finish, and when it would have finished had the loss not occurred.

“We were impressed with the ability of JTE to take very complex topics and vast quantities of data, and create a comprehensive claims package of our problematic three-year long contract.”
