Expanded Global Competition Capabilities
Analysis Group and MAPP, an economic consulting firm based in Paris and Brussels, have formed a strategic alliance to better serve clients in Europe and North America on international mergers and competition-related matters. Analysis Group and MAPP each bring deep expertise and innovative approaches to our engagements. Our experts have assisted clients in some of the most prominent cartel/monopolization cases of the last decade.
Expert economic analysis plays an increasingly critical role in antitrust litigation. Consider these factors:
- Rule of reason – The Supreme Court’s apparent move toward rule of reason analysis requires the economic study of industries
- Monopolization and predatory pricing – Court standards for analysis involving allegations of monopolization and predatory pricing have changed, broadening the role of economists
- Globalization of antitrust – Countries in the European Union, Latin America, and Asia are beginning to adopt and enforce antitrust laws. Some align with U.S. antitrust laws; others are used competitively against U.S.-based companies
Antitrust has been a core focus of Analysis Group’s work since our inception in 1981. Clients rely on us to provide the highest-quality analysis in addressing issues of class certification, liability, and damages.
We have helped obtain favorable outcomes for clients competing in consumer goods, financial services, health care, retail and wholesale distribution, manufacturing, agriculture, telecommunications, electric utilities, and transportation.
Our methods include surveys, market research, and conjoint analysis to measure consumer preference. These approaches provide important input to demand models, to predict prices and volume impacts in antitrust matters.
