Analysis Group Affiliate David Dranove Receives Award from the American Antitrust Institute

November 30, 2017

Dr. David Dranove, an Analysis Group academic affiliate, was awarded a 2017 Antitrust Enforcement Award from the American Antitrust Institute (AAI). AAI is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of the benefits of competition and the use of antitrust enforcement as a vital component of national and international competition policy. 

Dr. Dranove, the Walter J. McNerney Distinguished Professor of Health Industry Management and Professor of Management and Strategy at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, was one of three recipients of the AAI award in the category for Outstanding Antitrust Litigation Achievement in Economics. Dr. Dranove's award stemmed from his work as the Department of Justice's expert economist in its successful challenge of Anthem's acquisition of Cigna, two of the five largest health insurance companies in the United States. Dr. Dranove, supported by a team of economists from Analysis Group, submitted reports and testimony covering market definition, the impact of the proposed transaction on market concentration, and the impact of the proposed transaction on competition.
