ARLINGTON, Va., June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Monument Economics Group and Energy Litigation Services Group are pleased to announce their new affiliation. Pairing Monument's consulting expertise with Energy Litigation Services Group's focus on energy-related matters in litigation and consulting will enrich both firms and provide a more comprehensive suite of economic expertise for their clients.
Energy Litigation Services Group was founded in 2016 by Jane Kidd to provide economic analysis, guidance, and testimony in dispute resolution and regulatory forums impacting the petroleum, natural gas, and electric power industries. Having been retained by law firms, corporate legal departments, and government agencies throughout her career, Ms. Kidd has worked as an economic expert in nearly every market segment of the energy space. Her clients include supermajors, independent producers, national oil companies, mineral interest owners, midstream operators, refiners, LNG manufacturers, pipelines, electric utilities, and local distribution companies.
Monument Economics Group was co-founded in 2016 by Dr. Russell Lamb (President) and Christopher Jackman (Executive Vice President). Dr. Lamb has provided expert testimony in State and Federal Courts in the United States and in Canada on a range of issues including class-certification and economic damages in antitrust, RICO, and consumer fraud matters. With an extensive background in applied econometrics, Dr. Lamb has developed econometric models to measure damages in many matters involving allegations of horizontal price fixing.
Regarding this newly formed affiliation, Dr. Lamb noted, "This is a natural fit for Monument and for Energy Litigation Services Group—and a win-win for our clients. A variety of antitrust issues impact the energy markets including price-fixing, lease bid rigging, market manipulation, and undue rate discrimination. Due to increased federal antitrust oversight and state regulatory interventions, these issues are becoming more frequent in the crude oil, natural gas, and electric power sectors. Our partnership will allow clients to navigate these and other energy industry matters seamlessly. Jane's credentials are exceptional, and I am excited to have her firm as an affiliate with Monument. We look forward to supporting the work of Energy Litigation Services Group."
"I'm proud to partner with Monument, which has distinguished itself by providing quality economic research and empirical analyses to answer complex damages questions," added Ms. Kidd. "Together, Energy Litigation Services Group and Monument Economics Group offer clients a vanguard for the spectrum of economic issues presented in energy disputes."
