Marc Scarcella, MA


Marc Scarcella has more than 10 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 associated with latent personal injury claims due to environmental and product liability.

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 structured financial transactions. Mr. Scarcella has acted as consulting expert on a number of complex insurance coverage cases and has developed economic models for estimating potential insurance recoveries due to environmental and product liability claims. He has applied his expertise in forecasting future loss and litigation risk to the areas of asbestos, silica, pharmaceutical, water contamination, and tobacco litigation.

Prior to joining Bates White, Mr. Scarcella was Managing Director at Analysis Research Planning Corporation (ARPC), where he provided economic analyses and consultative services in 524(g) Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in the areas of asbestos liability estimation and insurance allocation. This experience has made Mr. Scarcella a recognized expert on claim processing management and valuation for 524(g) asbestos personal injury and property damages bankruptcy trusts, and he has testified on matters of trust transparency and potential plaintiff recoveries at both the state and federal level.  Mr. Scarcella has also consulted on issues of process and policy management for other Qualified Settlement Funds (QSF) established from non-asbestos product liability litigation.
