Areas of Expertise
Antitrust litigation and regulatory proceedings often require the application of economic and statistical analyses to a wide range of issues, including market definition, market power, consumer harm and anticompetitive effects, and damages.
These issues are often central to cases involving price-fixing, monopolization (e.g., predatory pricing, vertical restraints, and tying), and mergers and acquisitions. The same techniques are also useful in regulatory proceedings that seek to ensure that an incumbent with market power will not treat its rivals in a discriminatory fashion. Regulators have also relied on engineering economics to fashion remedies to the perceived exercise of monopoly power. In antitrust class actions, it's typical to require additional evaluations of common impact and the formulaic calculation of damages.
LitiNomics' experts have applied rigorous economic and statistical analyses to the full range of issues that arise in typical antitrust cases. We've also evaluated novel issues raised by allegations of predatory overbuying (a form of predatory pricing). Additionally, we've worked extensively on antitrust cases in the credit card industry, which is characterized by "two-sided markets."
We base our work on a deep understanding of the industries we analyze. LitiNomics performs rigorous evaluations of the alleged anticompetitive conduct, and presents our findings - along with the bases for the findings - in a manner that's appropriate to the audience. For example, presentations made to the professional staff at antitrust agencies or regulatory bodies (such as the Federal Communications Commission) are usually more technical than presentations to a jury. Above all, we strive for clarity in an area that is inherently unclear.
Throughout our history, we've helped clients decide whether to bring suit or settle, and served as consulting and testifying experts in many industries.
