Ms. McLaughlin specializes in antitrust and trade regulation. She has prepared studies of relevant product and geographic markets, market structure and performance, the impact of mergers and acquisitions, vertical and horizontal arrangements, and pricing and purchasing practices. These studies have focused on various consumer and producer industries, with particular emphasis on media and insurance.

Her work in the media and entertainment industries also includes analyses of proposed US Federal Communications Commission rules concerning cable and broadcast television; pricing of music copyrights and retransmitted television stations rights; evaluation of motion picture talent contracts; the impact of a new magazine introduction; the reasonableness of cable, home satellite, and recorded music projections; and the value of cable systems, cable networks, and newspaper distributors.

In the area of insurance, Ms. McLaughlin has also studied the effect of state rate regulation and deregulation of large commercial transactions, as well as the causes of the liability insurance crisis and its effect on reinsurers.

In addition, Ms. McLaughlin has performed studies of impact and damages in connection with antitrust, contract, intellectual property, and other litigation. The firms involved in these studies have included manufacturers of consumer electronics products, fertilizers, windows, paint, and pharmaceutical products; distributors of chemicals, steel, beverages, and telecommunications services and equipment; tobacco growers; and satellite and internet service providers.
