Who We Are:
Cornerstone Research is a leading economic and financial consulting firm with more than 500 staff members across eight offices. Together with an extensive network of internationally prominent faculty, we conduct rigorous, objective research applying the highest standards from academia to address complex financial, economic, accounting, and marketing issues that arise in litigation and regulatory investigation.
Cornerstone Research is involved in a broad variety of high-profile legal cases and disputes. Current matters focus on such topics as capital markets, business and securities valuation, M&A and other corporate-related litigation and regulation, risk management, market competition, the impact of marketing on consumers, and patent infringement. For example, we address issues affecting the ongoing development of financial markets, such as applying the intersection of finance and industrial organization economics to evaluate price setting in derivative markets. Beyond the financial markets, we address financial economics issues arising in a range of sectors, from such innovation-driven industries as life sciences and high technology to energy, telecommunications, and industrial markets. We address economic issues when evaluating potential mergers, claims of anticompetitive conduct, and the impact of intellectual property infringement. We also address marketing and economic issues arising in cases with allegations of misleading marketing or false claims. More detail can be found on our website at .
