Q: What is economic consulting?
A: Economic consulting—the kind done at Edgeworth—is the application of microeconomics to business issues. Rigorous empirical analysis, grounded in an understanding of economic principles and industry knowledge, is at the core of our work. This approach is foundational to everything we do, including providing expert testimony in litigation matters (in antitrust, class certification, intellectual property, labor and employment, and related areas), regulatory and economic impact analyses, transfer pricing, and valuation. In sum, we study markets and analyze data to help our clients with the issues they face.
Q: Who are Edgeworth’s clients?
A. Our clients include world-class law firms; government agencies; and Fortune 500 companies such as Samsung, Google, Bloomberg, and the NFL Players Association.
Q: What makes an ideal candidate?
A: Edgeworth is interested in attracting the best and the brightest individuals with enthusiasm for real-world economics and analytics. Ideal candidates are detail-oriented with an understanding of statistics and excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Most importantly, consultant candidates should be able to perform or quickly learn to perform rigorous empirical analysis.
