Our team of economists, accountants and finance experts draw on a core set of skills. We perform a wide range of economic and financial analysis to provide expert advice to our clients. Applying the theory and principles of micro-economics and finance, we analyse problems in a highly logical, structured and practical way, combining academic rigour with commercial judgement.
Our practice leaders have a wealth of experience and are recognised experts in their fields. They win interesting and challenging projects with outstanding clients and lead the delivery of our work, which can include providing expert testimony to courts and tribunals.
Managers are responsible for managing projects day-to-day, presenting the results of complex analysis in a clear and compelling form, reviewing the work of junior team members and providing coaching to develop their skills.
Our graduates play a key role in our project teams by performing industry research and starting to develop the knowledge and experience to perform detailed economic analysis and financial modelling. They benefit significantly from working closely with managers and other team members as well as from direct exposure to our practice leaders. They also benefit from our in-house training and skills gained from studying for their professional qualifications.
We have offices in cities across the world, with more than 250 staff worldwide. In London, our EFC practice has more than 140 people and each year we look to recruit at least 15 graduates. We operate in two main areas, Valuation, Disputes and Arbitration and Economic Regulation.
Valuation, Disputes and Arbitration
We have significant expertise in the valuation of businesses, intellectual property, financial products and other assets. We regularly provide expert evidence on valuation issues and the quantification of economic losses before courts and tribunals worldwide in a wide range of disputes.
We also provide valuation services for commercial, reporting and regulatory purposes, for example, in the context of licensing, investment appraisal, fiscal valuation and transfer pricing.
Our team of economists, econometricians and regulatory accountants have extensive experience across all the regulated sectors, including energy, telecommunications, transport, water and healthcare. The team has been responsible for the delivery of regulatory solutions in these sectors across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
We apply economic theory in a highly practical way to offer economic advice to both regulators and regulated companies on a wide range of issues, including:
- prices regulated firms are allowed to charge;
- regulatory framework and tariff design;
- cost efficiency analysis and benchmarking; and
- regulatory cost accounting.
