If you are seeking merger approval or are an affected third party we can help you throughout the different phases of the inquiry with economic and data analysis. We support your legal team, provide expert reports and testimony and liaise with the authorities’ economists.
We bring a solid economic background and experience with merger investigations. This allows us to provide advice pre-notification as to the likely economic issues you could be faced with and develop formal economic models to strengthen your case during an official investigation. We can also help you with an appeal.
We estimate competition economic models using your or third party data to test a theory or to uncover relevant parameters for the investigation - for example, how closely competitors interact.
We assist you in identifying and preparing your data following a data request, advise on what the authority might use the data for and investigate it for potential issues.
