CRA’s economists develop economic analyses on behalf of clients and present these before the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and other government agencies in connection with proposed mergers. We also submit expert reports, deposition testimony, and trial testimony in litigated antitrust cases involving the full gamut of antitrust concerns. Since our work on behalf of IBM in the 1970s, we have worked on many of the most important government and private suits on record, including Sprint/T-Mobile, Apple iPod iTunes Antitrust Litigation, Live Nation/Ticketmaster, US Airways/American Airlines, and CVS/Aetna, to name a few.
Our team of economists includes noted academics and former officials and senior economics staff of the DOJ and FTC. Published research by our competition economists has led to fundamental changes in how economists and antitrust enforcers consider monopolization claims, vertical restraints, and mergers. Our work encompasses a broad range of industries, including, but not limited to, aerospace and defense, computer hardware and software, consumer products, healthcare, insurance products, manufacturing and industrial products, natural resources, online services, telecommunications, entertainment and leisure, and retailing.
