Analysis Group Promotes Kris Comeaux to Managing Principal, Eric Korman to Principal
“I’m thrilled to recognize the hard work, creativity, and dedication of these consultants,” said Martha S. Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of Analysis Group. “Among their many accomplishments, they have assisted clients in a number of high-profile false and deceptive advertising matters and complex securities fraud matters.”
Ms. Comeaux is a widely respected economist, known for her work on complex commercial disputes, antitrust and finance matters, mass arbitration proceedings, regulatory investigations, and corporate strategy concerns. Ms. Comeaux’s work regularly involves examination of theories of liability, development of models to quantify damages, and both quantitative and qualitative analyses of allegations of negligence or punitive damages. Among her many contributions to significant cases, Ms. Comeaux has:
- Supported Comcast in an unfair competition and false advertising class action lawsuit (Charles Tillage, et al. v. Comcast Corporation, et al.). In this matter, Ms. Comeaux led a team in support of multiple experts who assessed the extent to which the fee disclosures in Comcast’s advertisements affected consumer behavior, evaluated the industry and competitive environment, and evaluated the plaintiffs’ experts’ method for estimating damages.
- Supported Intuit in a deceptive advertising lawsuit (Federal Trade Commission [FTC] v. Intuit Inc.). Ms. Comeaux led the support of the experts’ court submissions rebutting claims made by the FTC and its marketing and surveys experts.
Ms. Comeaux is also a leader of Analysis Group’s affinity group AGWomen+ and active in the firm’s diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
Mr. Korman’s experience spans finance, class action, regulatory, and antitrust matters. His extensive securities litigation experience has included providing damages exposure analyses, supporting counsel in mediation, and supporting experts in their preparation of testimony and expert reports on class certification, liability, and damages issues in numerous Rule 10b-5 and Section 11 matters. In ERISA litigation, he has evaluated investment performance, fees, portfolio management, mutual funds, and stable value funds. In wholesale electric power markets, Mr. Korman has contributed key analyses and testimony to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in several M&A and other competition-related proceedings. Among his many contributions to pivotal cases, Mr. Korman has:
- Supported clients in multiple securities litigation matters, including Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. Shareholder Litigation, In re Twitter, Inc.
