Based around the globe, our senior professionals have unrivaled expertise in analyzing and articulating the competitive effects and consumer benefits of mergers and acquisitions, especially in complex and dynamic markets such as healthcare, technology and networks.
How We Help
Our expertise includes the most complex matters that occur with filings in multiple jurisdictions around the globe. Global law firms involved in antitrust regulatory review, as well as multinational corporations considering transactions, engage us for our advisory services that cover the entire scope of activity within the M&A life cycle. For these clients, we regularly analyze competitive effects and benefits, and present evidence before regulatory authorities on both horizontal and vertical deals. Private equity firms also retain us as economists to do market scoping when they are considering transaction possibilities. Our team includes former government economists and practitioners, as well as economic experts with extensive private practice experience in M&A review across virtually all industries. Additionally, we serve as advisors and experts to the regulatory agencies around the world that oversee antitrust and competition matters.
Partner with us to benefit from our decades of experience and expertise in:
- Evaluating competitive effects, efficiencies and benefits of consolidation
- Comprehensively assessing and defining markets
- Empirical analyses and assessments of market conditions that affect entry and expansion
We employ the same empirical models used by regulatory authorities for assessing the competitive effects of transactions. In addition, when required, we utilize predictive analytics to test market scenarios and effects including the likelihood of successful divestitures, and we advise on the competitive aspects of transactions from conception to completion.
