About Economic and Financial Consulting:

In our Economic & Financial Consulting practice we provide expert advice on issues in economics, finance, business valuation and accountancy, primarily in the context of legal disputes and economic regulation.

Issues frequently addressed include the measurement and forecasting of economic performance; the financial analysis and valuation of direct and indirect interests in businesses; the value of intellectual property rights and complex financial instruments, and the effect of incentives on behaviour.

Examples of our recent work:

Example Project – Assessing the impact of digitalisation and proposed copyright reforms on the creative industries

We were engaged to assess the potential economic impact of proposed reforms to copyright rules as part of the EU’s Digital Single Market strategy. We collected data and prepared analyses to assess the impact of digitalisation
on the evolution of business models in the publishing and music sectors, and the potential effect of the proposed legislation on traditional players, new entrants, and the quality and diversity of content available to consumers.

Examples of other recent projects include:
