The proper design, implementation, and analysis of surveys can be a key asset in many business decisions and litigation contexts. Understanding how to frame the research question and align the survey methodology to the research question of interest requires expertise in areas of questionnaire design, survey design methodology, sampling as well as analysis of complex survey data.
Through statistical sampling and survey techniques, parties can gain insight into key issues related to management decisions, discrimination, product or service quality, and consumer preferences, choices, and willingness to pay. When properly designed, survey methods can add value to virtually any area of inquiry, ranging from marketing strategies to litigation, including class actions, antitrust and intellectual property, mass torts and labor disputes.
