Edgeworth Economics Recognized as a Top Competition Firm by GCR
Edgeworth Economics has been recognized as one of the top antitrust and competition economics consulting firms in the world by Global Competition Review (GCR), which named Edgeworth as one of the “Economics 21” in its 15th edition of the “GCR 100.”
Each year, GCR identifies 20-plus competition economic firms that have excelled from its survey of consultancies. Firms are measured using several criteria including practice size, reputation, and work from the previous year.
GCR's Feature on Edgeworth Economics
Since its founding in 2009, Edgeworth has undergone expansive growth, amassing more than 40 competition economics specialists with offices on both US coasts. The firm took home part of GCR’s Merger Matter of the Year award in 2012 for its work on the Seagate/Samsung merger.
With three offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, DC, Edgeworth Economics has pretty much all its bases covered in offering a US-wide competition economic consultancy. John Johnson leads the group, which also includes Who’s Who Legal: Competition nominee Gregory Leonard. Partner Fei Deng is also highly regarded; she leads Edgeworth’s China practice and has sought-after expertise on advising Chinese companies on US antitrust law, and multinationals on how to navigate China’s regime.
A key example of this is Deng’s work this year as a consultant to China’s Ministry of Commerce regarding the Thermo Fischer/Life Technologies deal, which was cleared with conditions. Edgeworth regularly advises on merger matters, particularly regarding US companies, but all other matters on the books are confidential.
The firm really makes its name in the antitrust litigation field, and Edgeworth is acting in some of the most significant US matters at the moment. These include In re Pool Products Antitrust Litigation, In re Nexium (Esomeprazole) Antitrust Litigation, and representing Twin America before the New York attorney general and a direct purchaser class regarding the tour bus market in the Big Apple. Edgeworth is also working on the mushroom, photochromic lens and rail fuel surcharge litigations; two are ongoing and one settled.
