Antitrust & Competition
Antitrust and competition have been at the core of Analysis Group’s work since our inception in 1981. We integrate industrial organization theory, econometrics, and industry-specific expertise, along with the latest quantitative analytical methods, to understand the conduct and market dynamics at issue in antitrust litigation and merger investigations.
Clients rely on us and our affiliated experts to provide in-depth analyses of issues relating to class certification, antitrust liability, antitrust damages, and the competitive effects of proposed mergers and acquisitions. Our work has included high-profile health care antitrust matters. Recent analyses include:
