Associates formulate economic and financial models and present the results of their findings. They collaborate with leading academic and in-house experts, seek mentorship from experienced consultants within the firm, and mentor our analysts in turn.
Our generalist associates work on litigation, regulatory, M&A, and other legal-related matters with Analysis Group colleagues, professors from leading institutions, counsel from premier law firms, and corporate and government clients. From the inception of a legal matter through its resolution, our associates contribute at every stage. Our health care associates – who are staffed to our HEOR, Epidemiology & Market Access practice – develop deep experience in life science fields, work closely with our in-house health care experts, publish in top journals, and have opportunities to work with teams from leading pharmaceutical companies.
Analysis Group fosters an academically oriented work environment with an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration across multiple areas of expertise.
