Bastian Gottschling assists law firms and their clients with expert economic analysis and testimony in investment and commercial arbitration. He specializes in quantum of damages and contentious economic and finance issues arising from long-term contracts in the energy sector.

Currently, Mr. Gottschling is performing quantum assignments in three investor-state disputes. His work encompasses economic analysis of competitive and regulated markets, as well as valuation analysis of investors’ positions in the counterfactual scenarios relevant for assessment of damages (i.e., assessing hypothetical situations under the assumption that the state’s measures had not taken place).

In recent long-term contract disputes, his expert reports and oral testimonies on gas and storage markets in Continental Europe have proved very helpful to tribunals in assessing the merits of requests for contract reform or price adjustments. His analysis and testimonies have spanned energy economics, regulatory economics, and competition economics relating to claims of market foreclosure and excessive pricing.

Mr. Gottschling has experience with economic dispute support in construction disputes and international tax disputes relating to transfer pricing, and with transaction support in mergers and acquisitions.
