Litigation Support

Uncovering documents and records can help reconstruct an appropriate historical context in which to frame current legal, social, and political issues. As an consulting expert, Dr. Jason Theriot has conducted litigation support services for many clients and firms, primarily in the area of oil and gas and environmental issues. Work in this specialized field involves identification, retrieval, and careful analysis of a wide variety of historical sources, some of which are found in public archives, special collections, state agencies, legislative records, libraries, museums, and private collections. Locating these often hard-to-find materials and gauging their usefulness to the subject matter requires effective planning, seasoned research skills, and careful evaluation and dissemination of the content.
