|Rothey, Bell & Taub
provides consulting services on economics issues to private firms,
government agencies and individuals.
The largest share of our work involves providing consulting
services to law firms and serving as expert witnesses on the
evaluation of damages in law suits related to personal injury,
wrongful death, employment discrimination, wrongful termination and
professional malpractice. We have been retained in hundreds of these
cases and our participation has been at the request of both plaintiffs
and defendants. Our work for law firms that are involved in litigation
also includes statistical analysis in employment discrimination cases,
calculation of economic damages in business litigation cases, and
statistical studies related to the assessment of damages in anti-trust
Rothey, Bell & Taub also
provides services in non-litigation settings. For example, we have
conducted econometric and time series forecasts of electricity demand
along with demand studies of residential housing, nationally
distributed snack foods and energy usage. We served as consultants to
a major law firm in the area of public finance. Our firm also acted as
a consultant to the Attorney General of the State of Ohio by
developing procedures and computer programs for determining the size
and allocation of awards in Ohio's Crime Victims Compensation Program.
Edward B. Bell and Allan J. Taub have been the principal
