False Advertising


Our economists have extensive experience as testifying and consulting experts in matters that involve allegations related to product labeling, product packaging, manufacturer claims, or potential defects.  We have experience assessing claims of “price premium” damages based on analyses of market data as well as consumer surveys.  In the context of class actions, our experts analyze class-wide damage models and assess predominance issues that arise under Rule 23.  Our work is based on the analysis of a variety of types of data, including retail scanner data, company transactional databases, and simulation data based on conjoint surveys.        

Edgeworth experts have experience with cases involving numerous consumer protection laws including The Federal Trade Commission Act, The Lanham Act, The Federal Tort Claims Act, and numerous other federal and state regulations.
