antitrust and competition

China Competition

We offer effective, practical experience in China.

CRA economists have a deep understanding not only of competition economics, but also of China’s culture, social and economic environment, and legislative and procedural complexities. Our experts have extensive practical experience in China, including working on both sides of the table with the Chinese antitrust agency, and testifying in antitrust and Intellectual Property litigation matters in various Chinese courts.

In our work assisting clients with China’s merger reviews and antitrust investigations, we combine global expertise and pioneering empirical and theoretical approaches with local in-depth knowledge and experience working with local regulatory agencies.

In our litigation and arbitration work in China, CRA economists are at the frontier of introducing and enhancing the use of economics analysis in antitrust and intellectual property disputes in China. We instill consistent rigor to our work, while bringing in creativity and flexibility in dealing with jurisdiction-specific issues.
