Antitrust & Competition

Overview

Edgeworth’s experts solve challenging economic issues that arise in antitrust litigation and merger review, applying the latest theoretical and empirical knowledge to analyze market structures, industries, and how companies operate and compete.

Our team has extensive experience as both testifying and consulting economists in all types of antitrust matters before courts and regulatory authorities. We have testified and presented economic analyses in Federal District Court, and before the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. Our experts have been at the forefront of shaping Courts’ increasing reliance on rigorous economic analysis in antitrust litigation in both Section 1 and Section 2 cases.

Our experts are skilled in addressing economic issues related to relevant markets (product and geographic), entry conditions, pricing, company behavior, and strategic agreements. We have performed analysis and testified on a wide variety of cases, including class certification, antitrust liability, and antitrust damages matters as well as mergers and acquisitions and criminal cartel investigations. In these contexts, Edgeworth experts have assessed economic and econometric issues relating to:


  • Horizontal price fixing
  • Market allocation
  • Bid-rigging
  • Volume of commerce calculations
  • Monopolization
  • Refusals to deal
  • Unilateral and competitive effects
  • Coordinated effects
  • Merger efficiencies
