New York -- NERA Economic Consulting, a leading global provider of economic advice and analysis in business, legal, and regulatory matters, announced today that it has formed a strategic alliance with the Mexican firm Agon Economía y Derecho. Agon is led by Eduardo Pérez Motta, former Chairman of the Mexican Competition Commission, and brings together a group of senior experts in competition, regulation, and international trade unparalleled in Mexico and throughout Latin America.

NERA and Agon will work together to provide economic consulting services in Mexico and throughout Latin America, particularly in the areas of antitrust and competition, economic regulation, and international trade.

We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Agon's outstanding team to offer economic consulting services to clients in the region."
