Initial ConsultationIt may take just a phone call, or a meeting. We will meet with you and your attorney to discuss the status of your matter and how we fit in. The earlier in the process the better. We want to earn your trust.
Data request and discoveryYou may have everything we need to get started, but this is not likely. We will work closely with you to gather the required information. Document requests and subpoenas can be used to fill in the missing pieces.
Data review and analysisAs documents and data is reviewed our scope may change. Additional documents are often sought to answer new questions.
Depositions and InterrogatoriesThis is our chance to ask the questions. We will work with your attorney to ask the right questions based on our analysis.
Report writingWe want you and everyone that reads our report to understand it. Yes it will be full of excel tables and numbers, but we also provide industry leading source data and clear and convincing written analysis. We use graphs and charts to simplify when possible.
Rebuttal and Expert DepositionsExperts don’t always agree. We will review opposing reports and consider how they impact our findings. This is also the time that the experts testify in preparation for trial.
TrialWe treat every case like it’s going to trial. Our purpose is to make sure the trier of fact understands our position. Every report and every conclusion is backed by our diligent analysis.
