Analysis Group, Inc. Company Profile

THE SCOOP

Analyze this

Boston-based Analysis Group, Inc. provides economic, financial, and business strategy consulting to law firms, corporations, and government agencies. Much of the firm's work is grounded in economic analysis-whether that is a quantitative assessment related to litigation, quantifying the impact of a disease on the U.S. economy, or developing a model for a client's corporate strategic planning exercise. 

To date, Analysis Group has provided support in litigation matters for attorneys at more than 500 law firms, including the 25 largest firms in the country, and has worked with Fortune 100 companies, consulting to general counsels and senior executives. The firm also has a robust health care practice. 

For law firms, the firm's consultants help with pretrial discovery, development of economic and financial models, preparation of testimony, critique of opposing experts' analyses, and provision of expert testimony. The ongoing economic crisis has resulted in a big uptick in engagements involving analysis of complex securities and related litigation, such as derivatives and credit default swaps, as well as securitized assets at the center of the subprime housing fallout, and assisting a wide range of participants in financial markets. 

Corporate and government clients call on the firm for help with a variety of business issues, including company and asset valuations, cost-effectiveness analyses, market and competition analyses, intellectual property, and tax issues. The firm's large and growing health care practice integrates outcomes research, epidemiology and drug safety studies, as well as litigation support, and pricing and product strategy.

 

Close-but not inside-the ivory tower

Former Arthur D. Little consultants Bruce Stangle and Michael Koehn founded Analysis Group in 1981 in Belmont, MA. The two Ph.D.s sought to fuse academic practice with business litigation by applying economic research to distill complex situations into narratives with powerful effect when introduced at trials. The firm primarily consulted on mergers and acquisitions to start; today, its consultants, working from nine offices in the United States and internationally from Montreal and a new Beijing office, opened in 2012, have experience in all areas of economics as it applies to the legal and business world, including securities, health care, energy, intellectual property, antitrust, and commercial litigation and damages.

 

Principled professionals

The firm adheres to four operating tenets, which give shape to a kind of business philosophy. The first is access: Analysis Group maintains close ties to specialists-top minds in academia, leaders in their respective industries, and government insiders-to ensure that clients have access to the best people and ideas. Consultants work closely with a network of such experts to offer clients quantitative analysis and hands-on experience to help overcome business and legal hurdles. The second is collaboration: The firm encourages strong relationships within consulting teams and between teams and clients, which ultimately improves communication, effectiveness, and satisfaction. The third is responsiveness, a result of being able to rapidly identify specialized experts for a case, and a flexible structure that allows teams to quickly scale up or down as needed. The final tenet is pragmatism: Analysis Group believes all strategies should focus on relevant, applicable solutions in the business or legal world. 

For each client engagement, Analysis Group's professionals are grouped into teams, which are tailored according to the needs of the project and the client. Often, these teams are supplemented by academic or industry experts from the firm's external network.

Energy Study Finds that New EPA Greenhouse Gas Emissions Guidelines Will Not Threaten Electric System Reliability

New requirements soon to be proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from existing fossil-fuel power plants will not give rise to electric system reliability problems, according to research conducted by Senior Advisor Susan Tierney. The report, "Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions From Existing Power Plants: Options to Ensure Electric System Reliability," finds that although reliability concerns have been raised in relation to the EPA's upcoming regulations, the new rules will provide states with significantly more opportunities for flexibility, innovation, and creativity in accomplishing the targeted reductions.

Judge Rules that Health System Acquisition of Physician Group Violates Antitrust Law 

In a closely watched matter of national significance, U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill ruled that St. Luke's Health System's acquisition of Saltzer Medical Group-the largest independent, physician-owned, multispecialty group in Idaho-was anticompetitive, and ordered St. Luke's to unwind the acquisition.

Analysis Group and academic affiliate Professor Deborah Haas-Wilson of Smith College were retained by attorneys representing Plaintiff Saint Alphonsus Health System to evaluate the likely competitive effects of the acquisition.  The lawsuit, which was a companion case to one brought by the Idaho Office of the Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission, alleged that the acquisition would substantially lessen competition for health care services, in violation of federal and state antitrust law.
