Our team has extensive experience helping clients before regulatory agencies and courts charged with scrutinizing mergers for potential anticompetitive effects. Often the whole deal may be on the line and the outcome depends on the strength and quality of the economic analysis.

We have a global capability with an extensive track record before the DOJ, FTC, and FCC in the US, the CMA in the UK, and the JFTC in Japan, as well as significant experience before the European Commission. We enjoy a good reputation with the regulatory agencies, who have also instructed us as experts―in particular in the US―ensuring that our submissions when representing clients are well received.

We support clients in all phases of merger analysis, from the initial assessment of the antitrust risks of a transaction to explaining the likely competitive effects to regulators, to identifying and assessing potential remedies including divestitures, to providing expert testimony in court.

We regularly work with our in-house data analytics and eDiscovery experts who enable us to respond rapidly and rigorously to challenging data and document requests, and to develop sophisticated analysis of the evidence to support our economic analysis. We also team with our restructuring and merger integration experts to provide evidence on failing-firm and merger efficiency issues.
