Overview

Independent and objective.

Berkeley Research Group provides to counsel, corporations, and governments throughout the world independent and objective testimony in matters involving antitrust litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and agency competition reviews. BRG experts combine a deep understanding of actual market behavior with relevant economic theory and sound empirical research. They have provided testimony and made presentations concerning antitrust issues in both state and federal courts and in meetings and hearings before the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, the European Commission, and other tribunals; and also before sector-specific regulators.

BRG’s antitrust litigation experience includes analyzing claims of price fixing; examining the competitive effects of alleged actual or attempted monopolization, predatory pricing, anticompetitive tying or bundling, exclusionary practices, and abuse of a dominant position; and investigating other competition issues such as those related to alleged price discrimination. Our experts have significant experience examining economic issues associated with proposed class certification in antitrust matters. BRG experts also analyze issues related to possible damages associated with all types of antitrust disputes. In addition, BRG provides our litigation clients and their counsel with data and document discovery, data management, and litigation support services.
