Law firms and companies involved in a dispute or litigation, or proactively evaluating intellectual property (IP) in an organization, often require the support of qualified outside resources to assist them with any economic IP issues.

International tribunals are seeing more and more cases of significant scale and complexity, requiring intensive data analysis and deep industry expertise.

The ever-increasing size and complexity of payroll, personnel and timekeeper databases makes it difficult...
The ever-increasing size and complexity of payroll, personnel and timekeeper databases makes it difficult for organisations to make business decisions and respond to legal claims on employment discrimination issues from employees, employment applicants, and governments. The entire human resources spectrum of hiring, compensation and bonus, training, experiential or commission assignments, performance evaluation, promotion, and separation creates risk for both private and public-sector entities. When the world’s top organisations face legal disputes involving these risks, they and their external counsel rely on our firm as a trusted, independent provider of employment dispute resolution support and advisory.
Clients engage our experienced team of senior labour and employment experts when they need to analyse large amounts of data quickly and effectively. We specialise in preparing economic and statistical analyses for clients that face disputes and compliance actions relating to wage and hour issues, class action, class certification, lost earnings and discrimination. Our team has deep labour and employment experience in handling the ever-increasing size and complexity of human resources, payroll, personnel and timekeeper databases. We can quickly and effectively utilise our specialised network analysis to improve visualisations and statistical analyses. This allows us to identify and quantify potential damage exposures that other, more traditional analyses simply miss.
