Sample Engagements

Joint Defense Group Requests Data Analysis

Counsel for a joint defense group requested data analysis and an expert report that resulted in a favorable summary judgment in an asbestos case where plaintiffs were seeking in excess of $100,000,000. Alan Gray LLC analyzed underlying claimant data, performed an audit of the underlying claims and calculated product exposure points corresponding to the insured’s ownership of the asbestos product.

Reporting Techniques Aggregate Losses

An account reconciliation on payments made in a chemical exposure case resulted in the collection of $4,000,000 in deductibles from the insured. Alan Gray LLC’s analysis determined that the insured’s data reporting techniques aggregated losses rather than applying per claim deductibles, resulting in a lower assessment of deductible dollars.

Decision Tree Analysis for Complex Hazardous Waste Litigation

Contracted to provide quantitative services in a complex hazardous waste litigation, the staff worked with counsel to develop and employ a decision tree analysis in conjunction with a number of standard allocation modeling runs, to value their settlement options. After factoring in the appropriate coverage discounts, the client was supplied with a working model in which they were able to change the probabilities of success/failure at their discretion. The result was a favorable settlement where the insured paid approximately 10% of their exposed limits, 75% less than originally demanded.
