Summary of Experience:

Dr. Chipty is an expert in industrial organization, antitrust economics, and econometrics. Her work spans both the areas of antitrust litigation and mergers and acquisitions. For example, she was Comcast’s antitrust damages expert in Behrend et al. vs. Comcast – a recent U.S. Supreme Court case in which the Justices dismissed the case against Comcast because of deficiencies in the plaintiffs’ damages model. She has studied the competitive effects of mergers and acquisitions, including Southwest Airlines/Airtran Airways, Arris/Motorola, Alcatel/Lucent, Time Warner Cable and Comcast’s joint bid for Adelphia, and Televisa/ GSF Telecom Holdings, S.A.P.I. de C.V., which owns Grupo Iusacell, S.A. de C.V. She currently serves as an advisor to the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission, for whom she has evaluated the competitive effects of health care transactions in the Commonwealth. Dr. Chipty has submitted testimony, testified at trial and at deposition, and given presentations before various organizations and agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice. She is co-editor of the forthcoming next edition of the American Bar Association’s book Proving Antitrust Damages. She has published academic research on the strategic use of vertical integration for market foreclosure, the role of firm size and network effects on bilateral business negotiations, and the effects of regulations on firm behavior. Prior to joining Analysis Group, Dr. Chipty was a vice president at Charles River Associates. She has served on the faculties of the Ohio State University, Brandeis University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she taught courses in antitrust and regulation, industrial organization, and econometrics.
