Competition authorities and courts play an increasingly pivotal role in business. They approve or block mergers, have extensive powers to investigate and penalise anti-competitive behaviour, examine the impact of State Aid, and determine the extent of damages payable by those who infringe.
We advise organisations on cases before Directorate General for Competition, the Competition Commission, the Office of Fair Trading, the Competition Appeals Tribunal and other national authorities, regulators and courts. We tap into our international network of competition economists in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Spain and the US.
Our team of economists understand how these authorities operate and the complex economics that drives their decisions. We provide practical and empirically-supported solutions in this crucial area. We combine traditional competition economics with strong quantitative skills, financial fluency and in-depth industry experience to provide expert analysis, evidence and testimony.
Whatever an organisation's challenge, we operate at the interface between economic and commercial reality and we are able to put your case to the authorities in clear, robust and convincing terms. Areas in which our economists become involved include:
