Antitrust Class Actions

CRA professionals have provided economic advice and testimony in many high-stakes antitrust class action cases. These have involved claims such as price-fixing, bid rigging, and monopolization. Our experience includes analysis of class certification issues, liability, aggregate and individual class damages, injunctive relief, and settlement distribution issues. We apply cutting-edge econometric techniques, simulations, and economic theory to complex economic questions, and present results in expert reports, oral presentations, depositions, and trial testimony that are readily understood by both economists and non-economists.

Antitrust class action disputes often require extensive data analysis and econometric or statistical modeling. Our economists build and analyze large and complex datasets, such as, for example, those comprised of transaction-level invoice data used in direct and indirect purchaser antitrust class action cases.
