Summary of Experience

Mr. Gustafson applies his expertise in economics, econometrics, and modeling to litigation matters, complex business issues, and the analysis of public policy issues. He has worked extensively in the areas of health care, insurance, employment, ERISA, finance, intellectual property, commercial damages, and class certification.

In his litigation work, Mr. Gustafson has testified at deposition, arbitration, and trial on physician compensation, the reasonable value of medical services, retirement benefits, employment compensation, lost earning capacity, and commercial damages, and he has critiqued plaintiffs’ proposed damages formulas in several class actions. His work with federal agencies includes leading teams in two notable fraud cases: US Department of Justice v.

Yuen, which resulted in one of the largest civil penalties ever assessed in an accounting fraud case.

Mr. Gustafson has worked with clients to perform affirmative pay equity studies and to develop methodologies to address identified disparities. He has explored economic issues associated with a wide range of insurance products, and also has experience in a variety of ERISA matters, including those related to 401(k) defined-contribution plans, health care plans, benefits, and insurance claims. Additionally, he has assembled and analyzed large, proprietary datasets common in pay equity, insurance, and health care engagements. Prior to joining Analysis Group, Mr. Gustafson was the business manager in Tokyo for an international nonprofit.
