The firm has again been recognised on this annual list, earning praise for the ‘scale and deep pool of available expertise’ it brings to a range of complex matters.
London—In its annual Litigation Support Guide, Chambers and Partners again recognised Cornerstone Research as a leading provider of economic analysis in business litigation.
Highlighting Cornerstone Research’s ‘thoughtful and creative’ team, Chambers cites the firm’s impressive ‘level of sophistication and knowledge of complex issues.’ The guide also notes Cornerstone Research’s ‘strong focus on financial services [and] competition and arbitration,’ as well as the ‘very responsive’ support it provides at all stages of commercial and regulatory proceedings.
They are thoughtful and creative, hard-driving with their analyses, and very responsive.
Chambers counts Cornerstone Research among the largest economic consultancies, with over 700 staff. The firm’s consulting professionals, the guide adds, are ‘hard-driving with their analyses,’ working with clients on complex, multi-jurisdictional litigation and in various arbitral centres.
Greg Leonard, who heads both the European finance practice and the firm’s London office, is named as ‘a seasoned economic analyst and a key contact.’
In particular, Chambers recognises Cornerstone Research’s work in a bellwether ‘clean diesel’ opt-out trial, In re Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation. The firm was retained to support Timothy Bresnahan of Stanford University, who served as the sole witness for Volkswagen in the compensatory damages phase. Following his three days of testimony, the jury accepted all of Professor Bresnahan’s economic damages numbers.
