Mr. Scarcella has over 15 years of experience as an economic consultant for mass tort litigation, specializing in quantitative methods and their applications in dispute resolution and strategic litigation management. He has extensive experience estimating litigation risk and economic damages related to environmental and product liability, including projections of latent personal injury claims. He has also developed economic models for estimating potential insurance recoveries due to environmental and product liability claims. Mr. Scarcella has developed forecasting models used to evaluate the impact of litigation and legacy liability on corporate financial management, transactions, and restructuring. His work has been leveraged in corporate financial disclosures for SEC reporting, bankruptcy reorganization, and due diligence for structured financial transactions.

He has applied his expertise in forecasting future losses and litigation risks to the areas of asbestos, silica, pharmaceutical, medical device, water contamination, sports-related head trauma, tobacco litigation, and additional forms of deleterious substances and environmental toxins.
