Who We Are
Cornerstone Research is a leading economic and financial consulting firm with more than 800 staff members across eight offices. We work with the nation’s top law firms and Fortune 500 firms in a wide variety of sectors, including technology, banking, energy, and healthcare. We work closely with an extensive network of internationally prominent experts to conduct rigorous data analysis and objective research, applying the highest academic standards to address complex financial, economic, accounting, and marketing issues that arise in litigation and regulatory investigations.
Cornerstone Research is involved in a broad variety of high-profile legal cases and disputes that are often covered on the front pages of business newspapers. Current matters focus on topics such as capital markets, business and securities valuation, M&A and corporate events, risk management, market competition, high-frequency trading, the impact of marketing on consumers, and patent infringement. Much of our work rests at the intersection of finance and economics as we evaluate 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. Much of our work involves qualitative and quantitative analysis, including sophisticated econometrics and cutting-edge data analyses. More detail can be found on our website: www.cornerstone.com.
Cornerstone Research provides an interesting and rewarding work environment. The firm has grown steadily over more than 30 years, and we maintain a firm culture that is collegial, supportive, friendly, and collaborative.
