Competition & Regulatory

Dispute Services

Increasing global collaboration and unification of standards of conduct enable more and more companies to expand to new markets. As such, they face numerous antitrust, merger-related regulatory or competition challenges involving:

  • antitrust analyses of M&A activity;
  • abuse of dominant position;
  • counter-competitive horizontal or vertical agreements;
  • state aid restrictions.

In such context, our work typically encompasses the application of quantitative methods to assess effects of anticompetitive practices (e.g. overcharges in cartelized industries) or regulations (e.g. overpricing due to wrong implementation of law).

In close collaboration with lawyers, our experts reinforce legal strategies by producing economic studies and econometric models to win the conviction of the competition authorities or deliver critical expertise in support of or in response to claims for damages when civil disputes emerge.
