Engaging an Economist on a Merger: Fundamentals of Antitrust Economics Series

25 June 2019
Hosted By: The Economics Committee and the Young Lawyers Division of the American Bar Association’s Antitrust Section

NERA Affiliated Academic Dr. Elizabeth Bailey will participate in a webinar examining when, where, and how to engage an economist in your pursuit or defense of complex antitrust analysis.

Dr. Bailey and fellow panelists will discuss the following questions:

  • When does it makes sense to engage an economist? Pre-deal? Post-announcement?
  • On a horizontal merger, how can an economist contribute to your matter? On a vertical merger? In a Second Request?
  • What are economic tools typically used in merger analysis that practitioners should be familiar with?
  • What are some of the strategic questions that come up when engaging an economist on a merger and which guideposts are useful in answering those questions?

To register for the webinar on 25 June, you will need to log in or sign up for an ABA Section of Antitrust Law membership here.
