February 21, 2024 – Cornerstone Research, a leading provider of economic and financial consulting and expert testimony, announced today that Rashid Muhamedrahimov has joined the firm to lead its Applied Research Center. The Center’s highly specialized team of experts collaborates with case teams to support clients with creative ideas and sophisticated approaches drawn from multiple subject areas and technical disciplines. The Center complements the quality and rigor of Cornerstone Research’s work by conducting novel research, developing new tools, and promoting thought leadership on specific and challenging issues.


Mr. Muhamedrahimov brings more than ten years of economic, litigation, and regulatory consulting experience as an economist and data scientist, having worked on nearly 100 cases in various capacities involving economics and data science analyses. Throughout his career, he has developed and applied advanced economic analytics tools and technologies to antitrust issues, including abuse of dominance and anticompetitive agreements, merger control, commercial litigation, and international arbitration matters.

I look forward to working with my new colleagues to support our clients in tackling those challenges.”


Before joining Cornerstone Research, Mr. Muhamedrahimov was the head of data science at an international consulting firm. He regularly speaks and publishes on the role of advanced methodologies and technologies in commercial litigation, including those at the intersection of data science and economics.
