For over 55 years, Charles River Associates (“CRA”) has been a premier consulting firm that offers employees a place to collaborate with and learn from a diverse group of consultants, industry experts, and academics.  At CRA you will join leading minds who use economic, financial, technical, and business analysis to solve complex problems for an impressive roster of clients, including 99% of the top 100 law firms, 89% of the Fortune 100 companies, and government agencies around the globe.  CRA offers a collaborative environment, with teams who strive for excellence by bringing curiosity, resourcefulness, and initiative to their work.  Through a collegial atmosphere, formal and informal training opportunities, and a broad array of professional development resources, your experience at CRA will open doors for you as you accelerate your career.

What we do:

CRA’s Finance practice is comprised of exceptional problem-solvers. We offer our clients independent economic and financial analysis and expert testimony.  Typically, we are retained to quantify economic damages in the context of large, complex commercial litigation matters.  Our work often requires the development of fact-specific financial models (including both damage models and valuation models).  These analyses are typically summarized in the form of an expert report, which sets forth our conclusory opinions (including the underlying analytical support for those opinions) in court.  Our diverse client base includes large, prominent law firms,  corporate clients, and governmental agencies.  The work we do helps our clients to effectively resolve disputes or make critical decisions about underlying financial, accounting and economic considerations during litigation.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
