As you can see, two of these three gentleman live outside the
Northeast. Ms. Kroll was going to check Juris Pros' roster of experts
for more precise matches, but since I never heard back from her, I
assume she didn't have any luck. Her contact info is:

George Georgiou, Ph.D.
Department of Economics
Towson University, Maryland:
Dr. Georgiou has written about the Greek economy. I e-mailed him, but
he hasn't replied yet.
Accenture financial analysts:
I have e-mailed them; no reply yet.
I telephoned the firm of Wilkofsky Gruen Associates in Manhattan:
They are currently too busy to assist with your case.
Anderson Economic Group in Michigan:
I e-mailed them, but no reply.
Economist, native of Greece. Tried contacting him via the media
office, but my e-mail was returned. (Probably NOT a feasible lead;
Varangis is an economist who specializes in agriculture.)
Civilitas Research based in Cyprus:
(e-mailed them to see if they have offices or staff members in the USA
who could assist in this case. No reply.)
(E-mailed them; awaiting reply.)
SG Cowen (NYC):

Morrison and Foerster:
"Morrison & Foerster LLP is an international law firm with extensive

This firm may be able to recommend some expert witnesses who can help
you. They have offices around the world and their Manhattan office
number is (212) 468-8000. I have e-mailed them re: your case; no reply
If McGladrey & Pullen, and/or the economist I found via NABE, won't
assist -- and they are the *only* perfect matches I could find for you
-- I urge you to call some of the firms I've listed above.
These people have the expertise to make the valuations and projections
necessary for your case. An investment firm like SG Cowen should be
perfect for your needs. Likewise, the expert witness firms may well
have experts who can evaluate your client's losses with great
accuracy. It is doubtful any of them can handle the language
situation, but you should be able to arrange for translation help with
a simple call to say NYU or Columbia. I respectfully re-emphasize that
I feel the translation component is really a secondary issue.
