Data Science

In today’s era of vast data proliferation, the primary challenge businesses grapple with is how to efficiently convert large-scale data into actionable intelligence. At Peregrine Economics, we harness the power of this data to foster informed decision-making processes, reduce litigation risks, and drive a data-informed business strategy. We work collaboratively with our clients to help them achieve their specific goals in analytics and compliance.

Our team of data scientists, economists, and mathematicians possess deep expertise in predictive statistical modeling, machine learning, and other powerful data science techniques. The team’s focus is not merely data analytics; we venture beyond traditional methods, focusing on extrapolating insights, discerning patterns, and constructing precise predictive models that underpin our client’s decisions. The data science and statistical techniques employed by Peregrine’s experts are applicable in a range of litigation contexts, including securities, labor and employment, and market manipulation.
