Antitrust Litigation

Overview

Edgeworth’s antitrust experts are on the cutting edge of applying rigorous statistical and econometric approaches to antitrust litigation with their work assisting counsel with data discovery or testifying on issues of class certification, liability, and damages.

Edgeworth has extensive experience in all stages of antitrust litigation, including data discovery, class actions and class certifications, and liability based on antitrust claims such as:

  • Price fixing
  • Monopolization
  • Criminal cartel investigations
  • Market allocation
  • Bid-rigging
  • Other exclusionary practices such as refusals to deal

We are also experts in employing econometric modeling in damages calculations related to the determination of monopolistic overcharges and assessment of the volume of commerce.
