Antitrust and Business Litigation

Our telecommunications, media, and postal economists have an unmatched reputation for highly defensible analysis, based on rigorous economics and quantitative methods, and grounded in a thorough understanding of the industry, market forces, and the facts of the case. We work with our clients at all stages of competition and litigation matters, ranging from pre-merger analyses and pre-complaint counseling through discovery, direct and rebuttal testimonies, cross-examination, and oral testimony. Our work and industry expertise has earned us an outstanding reputation for compelling quantitative analysis and persuasive testimony and skill under cross-examination. Some of our recent examples of our competition and litigation work include:

  • Anticompetitive conduct
  • Bankruptcy
  • Breach of contract
  • Business interruption
  • Business valuation
  • Coaxial network upgrades
  • Comparative advertising performance claims
  • Consumer class action

  • Economic damages
  • False advertising
  • MNO-MVNO price squeeze
  • Price fixing in the mobile sector
