CRA professionals have provided economic advice and testimony in a number of high-stakes antitrust class action cases involving claims such as price-fixing, bid rigging, and monopolization. This 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/statistical modeling, and our experts and staff excel in this area. CRA regularly builds and analyzes large and complex datasets such as those comprised of transaction-level invoice data used in direct and indirect purchaser antitrust class action cases and Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial payor claims data in healthcare and life sciences engagements.
