Editor: Please give us an overview of disaster situations that you have helped clients manage.

Dahlberg: We have assisted clients affected by the 9/11 terrorist attack, Oklahoma bombing, Japanese earthquake, Hurricane Irene and more recently Superstorm Sandy. Our work primarily involves economic accounting or other financial assistance to the companies that have been impacted by the disaster.

Farrow: For instance, we are currently assisting organizations of a wide range of sizes and industries that have suffered losses and/or incurred extra costs as a result of Superstorm Sandy. We are coordinating claim programs with management’s recovery plan, compiling cost data and assisting with quantifying economic and financial losses that companies have sustained as a result of the storm. In the past, we have worked on insurance claims in the tens and hundreds of millions of dollars for companies in diversified industries as a result of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes.
