In 2014 Orell Anderson founded Strategic Property Analytics, Inc. (S.P.A.), an advisory services firm focused on litigation support, strategy, valuation, and consulting. For 15 years prior to this, Mr. Anderson was a member of Bell Anderson & Sanders LLC and before that he helped establish the real estate damages practice at PriceWaterhouse LLP. Mr. Anderson was co-chair of the American Bar Association’s Litigation Sub-Committee on Expert Witness Programming, and is currently Co-chair of the ABA’s Environmental Committees on Damages and Eminent Domain. He was Chair of the International Right of Way Association’s Valuation Community of Practice from 2013 to 2014, and holds the MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute.
Failures, disasters, accidents, and intentional damages put us into action--to theorize about what happened, to gather information, to fully understand what went wrong.
The S.P.A. Team has worked on some of the greatest disasters, detrimental conditions, and related litigation in the world.
Much of what we have worked on is like a history of failures and missteps, of faulty intentions, and broken contentions. This is the foundation of our firm. We study failures, real and imagined, to better understand them and how they affect real property value. Our response to these happenings has contributed to new insights that may mitigate diminution in value. Our work has shaped the core methodologies currently used in the field of real property damage economics.
One of the Leading Causes of Solutions is Problems
Our unique approach to problem solving is a response to a complex world that demands the skills of real property experts working collaboratively with attorneys, agencies, and property owners.
In many ways, our greatest successes can be measured by problems that never occur. What interests us most—professionally and personally—is not the problems, but the solutions they generate. Of course, solutions cannot become possible without the clients who bring cases to us or without our dedicated team who help solve them.
Twenty-five years of thanks to all of you!
