NERA Economic Consulting Acclaimed in Global Arbitration Review’s Power Index

NERA Economic Consulting has been included in Global Arbitration Review’s Expert Witness Firms’ Power Index, a list of the top global consulting firms who provide expert witnesses in international arbitration cases.

GAR also ranked NERA as the most active firm in international arbitration energy cases, observing that “NERA’s performance in the energy table is no real surprise (it comes top for sheer volume) since the firm first grew from work for utilities and other regulated industries (including power companies). Sure enough, nine of its active experts specialise in energy matters; one, Dr Fabrizio Hernández, is the former Spanish secretary of state for energy.”

For over half a century, NERA experts have been central to client success in some of the world’s highest-profile disputes, regulatory proceedings, and business challenges. Our international arbitration experts help clients through all stages of the arbitration process, providing specialized expertise in both commercial and investment treaty arbitrations. Our experts provide authoritative, independent economic analysis, valuation opinions, causation determinations, damages assessments, regulatory opinions, expert reports, and testimony. They draw on decades of experience, combined with specialized knowledge and deep expertise in regulated industries and competitive markets. NERA economists have provided these services in major arbitration venues around the world, from the US to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

The GAR Expert Witness Power Index is designed to help law firms find the best expert witnesses in international arbitration. The index compares performances in average size of hearing, median size of hearing, and total number of hearings, among other factors.
