Our experts, both internally and from leading academic institutions, have worked on behalf of clients being investigated by government agencies in the context of mergers and acquisitions and alleged anticompetitive activity. 

We have also provided economic analyses of antitrust and competition issues for agencies including the US Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Federal Communications Commission.
