Description

Our Research Analysts (RAs) are involved in diverse, challenging assignments within a stimulating, collegial work environment. You will work side by side with internationally recognized experts in financial economics, corporate finance, energy, competition, and regulatory economics. You will have an opportunity to support our principals and academic advisors as they serve as expert witnesses before courts and arbitration panels on behalf of some of the largest and most successful law firms and corporations worldwide in addition to numerous public and government agencies in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere.

As a new RA you will participate in project teams with senior consulting staff.  The RA’s role includes: analysis, modeling, and research functions on client projects.  Major focus areas for new research analysts can be financial and operational modeling, industry analyses, and literature review.

You’ll have the opportunity to discover where your interests lie and how you can best apply your skills.

By the end of the first year, typically you will have learned to conduct basic research, build spreadsheets and models, present research findings in a clear and consistent manner and have gained experience and aptitude with data management software beyond Excel.
