Luke

Senior Analyst, Denver

Why did you choose Analysis Group?
I thought litigation consulting would be a cool intersection of two of my academic interests: math and arguing. (Just kidding!) Once I settled on that, Analysis Group was the easy choice because of the people and culture.
What do you enjoy most about your work? What do you find most challenging?
I like that every day is different, and that I’m constantly challenged to expand my skill set. Coming in with a mostly quantitative background, I thought I’d end up specializing in coding and modeling. However, I’ve been pushed to get better at many other skills, including researching and writing. I like that Analysis Group doesn’t expect analysts to specialize.
What new skills have you learned since joining Analysis Group?
I’ve gotten much better at coding in R and SAS, and have learned a lot about keeping my writing concise and to the point.
What is it like to work on a case team?
It’s the best part of the job! I’d had no experience in litigation, so I knew very little about how the processes work. It’s fascinating to see all the moving parts coming together in a trial. When a team is working well together and everyone’s contributing, it makes for the best end product.
What is the culture like in the Denver office?
The best thing about the Denver office is our ability to take breaks together and put work aside. When we’re eating lunch or having happy hour on Friday, all talk of work is gone. Instead we discuss where we’re skiing this weekend, what hikes to take, or which brewery in Denver is the best.
