M&A Antitrust Review

CRA assists clients seeking clearance for proposed mergers and acquisitions from national competition authorities. We also assist third parties and government agencies in connection with mergers and acquisitions. Our engagements have involved a wide array of firms and industries worldwide.

We define relevant product and geographic markets, measure market concentration, evaluate conditions of entry and efficiencies, and assess competitive effects. As appropriate, we employ advanced econometric and economic approaches—many of which were developed by CRA economists—to assess the competitive implications of mergers.

If a merger is challenged by a government agency, CRA experts also provide expert testimony on the competitive effects of horizontal and vertical mergers. CRA also advises companies in many industries to assess whether potential acquisition targets are likely to trigger investigations by competition authorities.
