"The addition of the Intensity team marks an exciting step in Secretariat's growth story. As one of the most respected teams in the industry, their strong economic and econometric skills add significant new capabilities to our roster in critically important areas to our legal clients, including intellectual property and securities, while adding depth to our existing antitrust team," said Don Harvey, managing director of Secretariat.

Secretariat expanded into economic consulting with the 2021 acquisition of Economists Incorporated, an advisory firm with more than 50 people in DC, Tallahassee, and San Francisco.

Secretariat has more than 600 employees listed on LinkedIn, with offices across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific. The firm advises law firms and global corporations on forensic investigations, construction damages, construction delay, government contracts, and economic damages.

“Finding the right cultural fit and sense of shared values were imperative to us when considering any partnerships,” said Ryan Sullivan, president of Intensity. “Now, as a part of Secretariat, we join an amazing and talented team of really smart people who excel at working together on tough challenges."
