Utility Pole Publications
McIntyre Associates, LLC has provided expert services in a variety of utility pole cases where typically the issues are personal injury and product performance. Each case is evaluated on its own merits and the result is that both defense and plaintiff positions have been taken. As well, McIntyre Associates has participated in utility conferences for decades and published numerous papers for the utility audience. Dr. Craig R. McIntyre was also the co-inventor of the “CCA-Oil” system that provides softer climbing surfaces for linemen.
