Peer review is the evaluation of work performed by one or more professionals practicing within the same profession in accordance with the accepted standards of practice for that profession. In example, an architect reviews the performance of and standards of practice of another architect, and so forth.
When Peer review is used in the context of construction litigation support, our Los Angeles construction experts at MPGroup are called upon to review the performances and practices of our Peers: architects, engineers, contractors and other construction professionals inculpated in a legal cause of action.
When called upon to review and proffer opinions pertaining to an architect or professional engineer, the attorney must file what is known as a "Certificate of Merit." The certificate of merit was intended to curb superfluous litigation filed against design professionals. In example, the plaintiff attorney is assisted by the designated expert (design professional: architect or engineer) to ascertain the technical merit(s) of a potential case prior to filing suit.
At MPGroup, we stand ready to assist legal counsel with our professional and technical expertise as either consultants or designated forensic expert witnesses.
If you are now or in the future in need of expert assistance for any construction-related matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.
