How we can help

Antitrust and Competition

We work on the full spectrum of antitrust and regulatory issues, combining insights from the latest thinking in economic theory with empirical evidence using sophisticated economic tools.  

Our experts have extensive experience addressing issues of market definition, market power, competitive effects, damages, and class certification. Our talented team brings a proven track record of delivering insights and clarity on the central questions in mergers, regulatory actions, market investigations, and all phases of antitrust litigation. Within litigation, we have expertise in both corporate litigation and class actions.  


Class Actions

AlixPartners has extensive experience applying rigorous and fact-based economic analysis to issues pertaining to class actions throughout all stages, from class certification, through merits, to settlement or trial. Our experience includes class actions in the areas of antitrust and competition, false and misleading advertising, financial products and services, consumer products and others. 

Our experts assist clients by providing analysis of class certification issues such as commonality and typicality, class member conflicts, causation, class-wide damages, common injury, and methods of proof.

We leverage our deep experience in compiling large, complex datasets from transaction-level records and other company data. We synthesize our understanding of actual consumer and firm behavior in the industry, relevant economic and finance theory, and relevant empirical research to develop robust, fact-based analyses and testimony responding to the issues of class actions. 


Public Policy & Regulation

When considering public policy intervention or market reform, governments and regulatory agencies need to carefully analyze the markets concerned to determine whether intervention is appropriate (for example, if there is a form of market failure), and to consider the likely impact of different forms of proposed intervention. Our expert economists assist government agencies, regulators, and companies that are affected by the proposed regulations to rigorously analyze the markets and evaluate the likely effects of intervention.
