Antitrust & Competition Economics
FTI Consulting, particularly through its Compass Lexecon subsidiary, has provided expert advice and testimony in hundreds of complex antitrust matters, assisting with many of the highest-profile antitrust and M&A actions and transactions of the last 30 years. We apply cutting-edge industrial organization theory and use sophisticated economic and econometric analyses to analyze and explain the complex issues that define these engagements. Additional information on our capabilities in this area can be found at Compass Lexecon.
FTI Consulting and its Compass Lexecon subsidiary employ the largest group of world-renowned antitrust/competition experts.
We have evaluated hundreds of proposed mergers and acquisitions on behalf of both government agencies and private parties. Using rigorous, state-of-the-art analytical methods applied to complex data, we evaluate the likely effects of proposed mergers and acquisitions on prices, costs and competition.
Our experts also regularly assist both defendants and plaintiffs in antitrust litigation, including cases involving price fixing, predatory pricing, bundling and various forms of allegedly exclusionary conduct. An integral part of our role in many of these cases involves the estimation of lost profits or damages from elevated prices and output restrictions.
In the United States, we have provided expert testimony and presentations before federal and state courts, federal regulatory agencies (including the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Department of Transportation, the International Trade Commission and the Surface Transportation Board), state regulatory agencies and arbitrators. Worldwide, we have provided expert testimony and analysis in a variety of jurisdictions, including Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Australia and New Zealand.
