December 12, 2012, Washington, D.C. – ARPC is a business advisory consulting firm providing analytical guidance to clients facing legal and business challenges. ARPC announced that over the past 36 months the company has designed and implemented class action settlements totaling $8 billion, involving more than 66 million claimants.
From econometric modeling to the development of frameworks for valuing and paying mass tort claims, ARPC experts have been sought out for their combination of academic credentials and extraordinary analytical expertise.
“ARPC has been directly involved in facilitating the resolution of some of the best known class action settlements in U.S. history,” explained John Brophy, ARPC Partner. “From our very first case more than 30 years ago – the Love Canal toxic waste case – to our recent role as economic advisors to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility to help settle claims in the BP oil spill case, our team has extensive experience deriving unique analytic solutions,” he added.
“The ARPC body of work has involved issues and problems that have had profound impacts on businesses, on the environment and on individuals,” said Tom Florence, Ph.D., and Founding Partner of ARPC. “Over the past 30 years, we have consulted on more high profile cases involving environmental damages such as the North Sea Oil Platform explosion, product liability matters such as those involving breast implants, IUDs, and joint replacements, as well as bankruptcy cases such as United States Gypsum, Armstrong World Industries, and Owens Corning than any other consulting firm in the United States,” he explained.
ARPC consultants possess advanced academic degrees coupled with expertise across such industries as Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, Energy, Finance, Consumer Products, Automotive, and Manufacturing.
