Analysis Group Team and Academic Affiliate John Mayo Contribute to DOJ Win in Waste Management Merger Case
July 27, 2017
In the trial, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) argued that the merger would unacceptably reduce competition without delivering the financial benefits the companies were claiming. The DOJ retained Analysis Group's academic affiliate, Professor John Mayo of Georgetown University, as its testifying expert. Supported by an Analysis Group team including Managing Principal Christopher Borek, Vice President John Browning, and Manager Maria Garibotti, Dr. Mayo analyzed market definition, finding that the proposed transaction would substantially increase concentration in the relevant markets and would eliminate the close, head-to-head competition that has demonstrably benefited customers.
