It’s welcome news that the union government has finally come up with new plans to end years-old disputes with infrastructure companies. According to a report, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) alone is to clear claims of over Rs.50,000 crore to road developers, and the amount could exceed Rs.1 lakh crore if the claims related to railways and power are combined. Needless to say, these disputes are endless and tiring for both the parties alike and the solution is simply making the construction documentation foolproof & foresighted. It’s no wonder that leading construction companies world over seek the help of highly specialized and experienced consultants like Rising Sun Engineering & Consulting (RSEC) - a consulting firm focused on providing techno-legal consultancy and assistance with the interpretation of & compliance with laws related to construction contracts across the Indo-US corridor. This includes, but is not limited to, drafting contracts, contract administration, litigation, and alternative dispute resolution (such as mediation and arbitration).

Thanks to its decades-strong wisdom in the construction industry of both India and the US, RSEC’s clients include the globally leading construction companies like Godrej & Boyce, L&T, Tata Projects, S & T Interior and Contracting, Surat Diamond Bourse, and several other leading civil engineering contracting & road building companies. This 2014 born company’s experience plinth, however, can be traced back to its Founder & Chief Project Engineer, Pinky Vyas. A civil engineer from India, she had her baptism of fire in the highly competitive construction industry of the US. CEO Insights interviews Pinky to explore more about the anecdote of RSEC, which today is a
certified minority -owned and woman-owned business in the state of Maryland.
