NERA Economic Consulting is a global firm of experts dedicated to applying economic, finance, and quantitative principles to complex business and legal challenges.
For over half a century, NERA’s economists have been creating strategies, studies, reports, expert testimony, and policy recommendations for regulatory authorities, governments and the world’s leading law firms and corporations.
NERA serves clients from over 20 offices across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
Competition work consists of economic research typically arising in the context of one of two main areas : litigation, and the review of mergers and acquisitions.
Litigation involves alleged violations of EU or national competition laws, such as price fixing or the abuse of dominance.
In these matters, NERA’s experts work in a variety of capacities, including conducting empirical analyses to determine whether economic evidence supports the claims of either side, and estimating damages caused by the violations.
The review of mergers and acquisitions involves conducting economic research to assess whether a proposed transaction is likely to increase market power and harm consumers.
In these cases, NERA experts work with merging parties, the European Commission, national competition authorities or regulators to quantify the likely competitive effects of a transaction.
This work can occur as part of a regulatory review process conducted by the authorities as well as in court.
NERA’s experts also advise on competition policy and regularly provide input to the development of guidelines and the general competition policy debate.
