Dr. Dunbar joined NERA in 1979 and founded the firm's Securities and Finance and Mass Torts and Product Liability Practices. He was widely regarded as a distinguished economist “who worked at the intersection of law and economics.” Throughout his career at NERA he was a sought-after expert witness whose testimony and use of econometrics—a form of mathematical and statistical analysis—significantly influenced claims estimation and litigation in court cases and arbitrations worldwide.
