From the CEO
This issue of Forum demonstrates the broad scope and deep impact of Analysis Group’s ongoing work on behalf of our clients. We continue to use leading-edge methodologies and analysis to tackle issues across virtually every sector in the landscape of economic and litigation consulting.
Our teams are exploring new applications for machine learning and big data in different types of litigation support. Exciting developments in other evolving areas include examining the bases of competition for biosimilar products introduced in the pharmaceutical market; clarifying key privacy and data security issues in the online world; analyzing the impact of new regulatory requirements in the area of labor and employment; and providing analytical insights into new frameworks for clean energy. We also strengthened our relationships with groundbreaking thinkers in the field of economics.
Our firm continues to grow – in size, geographic reach, depth of expertise, and scope of our extensive network of affiliates. We also recently modified our firm leadership. While continuing as CEO, I am now also Chairman of Analysis Group’s Board of Directors. Pierre Cremieux is now President, and Bruce Stangle, formerly Chairman and Co-founder, continues as Co-founder.
We remain committed to our distinctive, collaborative culture, which provides the underpinning for the success of our firm and our clients.
