Charles River Associates is an economic, finance, and business consulting firm that works with businesses, law firms, accounting firms, and governments in providing a wide range of services. We combine economic and financial analysis with expertise in litigation and regulation support, business strategy and planning, market and demand forecasting, policy analysis, and engineering and technology strategy. We are distinguished by a corporate philosophy of providing responsive, top-quality consulting; an interdisciplinary team approach; unsurpassed economic, financial, and other analytic skills; and pragmatic business insights. Founded in 1965, CRA has completed thousands of highly complex consulting engagements around the world.
Since our initial public offering in 1998, CRA has grown, both in terms of revenue and operating scale. We've accomplished this through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, broadening our penetration into new vertical markets and strengthening our competitive position in existing markets. We also have greatly expanded our geographic footprint into additional U.S. and international markets. Headquartered in Boston, CRA has offices throughout North America and Europe. Our success stems from our exceptional staff of consultants, many of whom are recognized nationally and internationally as experts in their respective fields, and we complement our staff by maintaining close working relationships with a select group of academic and industry experts.
The global business environment continues to become more complex and challenging, and CRA thrives on the increased need for first-rate economic, financial, and market analysis and industry expertise, as well as cutting-edge solutions to the most important and valuable legal and business problems.
We hope that our investor relations website proves to be both useful and informative. Please visit this site frequently for updates. We look forward to keeping you informed about the continued success of CRA.
