Financial Services

CRA has been involved in many of the largest and most prominent financial disputes that have occurred over the last decade. Banks and other financial firms rely on us for high quality research and analysis, expert testimony, and comprehensive support in litigation and regulatory proceedings. Our experts have backgrounds in all areas of finance and accounting and work closely with leading academics from top-tier research institutions, including former members of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, CFTC, DOJ, and European Commission.

CRA and its subsidiary Marakon also help financial institutions effectively navigate and respond to the new regulatory, competitive, and customer landscape in ways that maximize value creation. We help institutions re-think inorganic strategy, capital allocation, commercial and go-to-market models and organizational structures and people/talent agendas so as to continue to make fundamental progress in the new world.

Our clients include large financial institutions across retail, commercial and wholesale banks, insurers, payments companies, fintech companies, and wealth and asset managers and their counsel.
