For litigation matters, our team provides support over the entire cycle of a case by developing clear, concise, and timely economic analysis. For regulatory proceedings, we work closely with our clients to understand the public perception as well as technical aspects of the arguments, and provide data-driven economic analysis to support our conclusions.
We develop economic analysis and support clients by informing the public about potential outcomes of proposed regulations, preparing technical content for hearings, and providing testimony. We work with our clients to prepare detailed economic analysis of potential economic costs and benefits that are presented in a clear and concise way, tailored to the specific audience.
