Retail & Distribution

CRA assists manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers in assessing a myriad of compliance issues including but not limited to competitive, financial, fraud, intellectual property, regulatory, and valuation matters. Our integrated team of experts have long applied leading-edge theories and analyses in many different types of retail markets, including department stores, mass merchandisers, drug stores, supermarkets, and many others, and provides customized solutions to clients in a constantly evolving sector.

Our expertise and deep factual understanding of retailing allow us to apply state-of-the-art analysis to such numerous issues such as product and geographic market definition, entry conditions, and synergies resulting from retail consolidation. CRA has been also retained by private parties and government agencies to provide expert reports, deposition, and trial testimony in many matters involving retail markets.
