Dr. Parker M. Normann has twenty years’ experience applying economic techniques to antitrust litigation, mergers, and regulatory matters for some of the world’s largest and best-known companies. Dr. Normann has worked on complex litigation and mergers in a variety of US and Canadian industries, including pharmaceuticals, electronics, paper products, transportation, manufacturing, and agriculture. He has also worked on matters and prepared position papers for the banking and financial markets, real estate sector, major auditing firms, and the election and political markets. Dr. Normann is well known for his ability to present complex economic concepts to technical and non-technical audiences alike.

In litigation settings, Dr. Normann has provided expert oral and written testimony at trial and in federal court and has served in various consulting and mediation engagements. Courts have cited his testimony favorably, calling it “reliable” and “persuasive,” and it has been relied on in pharmaceutical litigation as a basis for granting a rare instance of downstream discovery.

In mergers and acquisitions, Dr. Normann has advised numerous deals—often presenting before the FTC and DOJ during a second request or pull-and-refile circumstances. Of these, all have ended in a successful outcome for the combining parties.

Global Competition Review awarded Dr. Normann the 2012 Matter of the Year award for his work in the Seagate/Samsung transaction, and named him a finalist for the 2013 Economist of the Year award.
