Davis & Hosfield professionals follow a career path that is segmented into five levels based largely on background and experience.  Promotion from one level to the next is based on a variety of factors, including individual performance and contributions.

Consultant
This is an entry-level position for professionals who have completed their undergraduate studies in accounting, finance, or economics. Consultants are responsible for reviewing, analyzing, and inventorying documents and case materials, developing financial models, participating in meetings and teleconferences with clients, and preparing our experts for deposition and trial testimony.
Senior Consultant
These professionals draw upon their background and experiences as a Consultant to begin to take a more autonomous role in developing appropriate damages approaches and creating financial models. They also mentor and direct the efforts of Consultants and begin to draft expert reports under the supervision of Managers, Directors and Principals.
Manager
After mastering the role of Senior Consultant, our professionals begin to manage engagements whereby they take on additional responsibilities in helping to develop case strategy, establish roles and responsibilities for all team members, supervise the work of Consultants and Senior Consultants, draft expert reports, and act as the point-of-contact for the client. Managers are also tasked with various administrative responsibilities for their engagements.
Director
Similar to a “Senior Associate” or “Junior Partner” at a law firm, Directors have two primary responsibilities. They (1) continue to manage engagements for other experts and (2) serve as the testifying expert on their own engagements.
Principal
Similar to a “Partner” at a law firm or accounting firm, Principals are established experts who are no longer responsible for managing engagements for others. They focus their efforts on their own engagements where they serve as the testifying expert and lead their engagement teams in all aspects of the client engagements.
