Antitrust and Competition

General Antitrust and Competition Policy

General Antitrust and Competition Policy

Recent regulatory developments around the world suggest a growing movement by competition authorities toward more stringent enforcement and stronger penalties. In Europe, Australia, Asia, and the US, competition authorities continue to vigorously target price fixing and cartel activity. This trend has been accompanied by a shift toward a greater reliance on and increased scrutiny of quantitative analysis in antitrust and competition proceedings.

In order to comply with these more rigorous policies, companies need access to strong quantitative analytical capabilities while avoiding potentially costly "quick fixes." Shortcuts that fail to take into account the larger economic issues that affect complex antitrust matters can backfire, leaving businesses more vulnerable to litigation and regulatory investigations, challenges, or fines.

NERA's experts understand the specialized business issues and the broader economic conditions that underlie competition matters. Our expertise in applying rigorous economic, analytical, and quantitative tools to global antitrust and competition policy issues is reflected in our experts' numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals and other periodicals. NERA economists help clients bolster their legal and regulatory cases, counter allegations of antitrust violations, and anticipate internal vulnerabilities.
