Apr 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal announced that Steven Schwartz has joined the firm's global forensic and dispute services practice as a managing director based in New York.
In a release, the company noted that with more than 27 years of economic consulting experience, Dr. Schwartz will focus on expanding A&M's economic litigation capabilities in matters concerning antitrust, securities and finance litigation, labor litigation, IP litigation and commercial damages. The move comes on the heels of the addition of Suzanne Stuckwisch, a managing director based in New York and San Francisco who brings significant expertise in data analytics and financial analysis to the practice.
"Economic consulting services have become in increasingly high demand in complex disputes spanning the gamut of litigation," said Bryan Ruez, managing director and the global co-leader of A&M global forensic and dispute services. "As an economist by training and trade, Dr. Schwartz will be invaluable in enhancing the firm's economic litigation services capabilities and further strengthening our team of seasoned professionals with diverse and deep expertise in financial, accounting, economic, regulatory, industry and technical areas."
The company said that throughout his career, Dr. Schwartz has been retained as an economic expert in a variety of litigation matters, including antitrust and IP cases in federal court, damages matters in state court and testimony before the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Tax Court. His notable assignments include work for Sirius XM Satellite Radio, Procter & Gamble Cos., Bank of America and AT&T Wireless.
Prior to joining A&M, Dr. Schwartz spent 27 years with NERA Economic Consulting in White Plains, NY, where he most recently served as senior vice president and head of the White Plains office. Prior to joining NERA, he was a faculty member in the Economics Department at Miami University, in Oxford, OH, and an economist at the Federal Trade Commission.
