Sellick has joined the firm as a Principal; he has also been elected as Chairman of the Board.
Mr. Sellick is an experienced consultant and expert witness specializing in the management of complex quantitative analysis in litigation matters, particularly projects in environmental, mass tort and product liability claims. He has testified in state and federal court regarding allocation of losses to insurance policies, tort liability forecasting, and the use of statistics in evaluating mass tort liability claims. He has repeatedly been recognized as a thought leader by Who’s Who Legal in their annual global register of insurance & reinsurance expert witnesses. Mr. Sellick has been directly involved in cases involving billions of dollars in liabilities arising from environmental remediation, asbestos & talc personal injury claims, and major product recalls.

Sellick founded Gnarus in 2007 and was its Managing Director from 2007 through 2017, when Gnarus was acquired by Nathan Associates. He served as Senior Vice President for Litigation & Expert Services and as a member of Nathan’s Board of Directors after the acquisition.
Gnarus re-launched as an independent consulting firm in August 2021 under the leadership of President Dr. Jessica B. Horewitz and Vice President Devin C. Malaise. At launch 23 professionals joined Gnarus, which operates from offices in Los Angeles, Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Boston as well as other locations throughout the United States.
“I am extremely excited to be re-joining my friends and colleagues in our shared professional journey” said Sellick. “Jessica, Devin and others have done an amazing job of getting Gnarus 2.0 off the ground and I look forward to helping them and the rest of the Gnarus team secure the firm’s future for the mutual benefit of our colleagues, clients, and employees.”
