A distinguishing feature of Dr. Ferreira da Cunha’s work in high-level litigation, disputes and due diligence is his independent and informed viewpoint of the actual market: notably of the underlying market trends that guide business decisions. His approach to research questions combines his proven track record as an observer and monitor of industry trends and his proficiency in quantitative methods and models. Together these create a unique combination of practical and theoretical research, translating state-of-the-art theoretical knowledge into clear-cut and actionable recommendations for decision-makers.
Prior to joining BRG in 2020, Dr. Ferreira da Cunha was a Director at a large energy research and consulting company, leading its team for South American natural gas markets. In this role he was responsible for developing the company’s long-term scenarios for natural gas supplies, demand, prices and infrastructure in the Southern Cone and Andean regions, in coordination with global upstream, LNG and power storylines. His scenarios for the region underpinned several consulting projects, whose scopes ranged from market screening, monetization strategies, scenario planning, and strategic decision support through to asset due diligence and valuation.
