BRG today announces the appointment of David Parker, a renowned economic consultant and expert in competition and antitrust matters, who joins the firm’s London office. He advises on mergers, competition investigations, and disputes and offers support related to antitrust and economic regulation, with deep experience in the digital, financial services, and retail sectors, among others.

BRG Vice Chairman and Managing Director Dr. David Sunding, also a specialist in antitrust and competition who is spearheading BRG’s expansion in Europe, said, “David brings a wealth of experience to BRG and is a key addition to our growing antitrust and competition practice. His arrival reflects our ambition and momentum as we build out our global capabilities in this important area. We are particularly excited about David’s experience with platforms and multisided markets that are central to the digital economy, a field that we expect will be at the forefront of competition policy for years to come.”  

“We are delighted to welcome David to BRG,” said BRG Principal Executive Officer and President Tri MacDonald. “His deep expertise in the economics of competition and antitrust aligns with our strategic growth objectives and enhances our ability to deliver robust economic insights to our clients. David is highly regarded for his innovative and rigorous approach, and his appointment underscores our commitment to building a top-tier global antitrust and competition practice.”  

Mr. Parker, who is recognized by Who’s Who Legal as a Global Elite Thought Leader, said, “I am excited to join BRG, a firm known for its precedent-setting approach to economic consulting. BRG’s growth in Europe and the US offers a unique platform for me to leverage my expertise. I look forward to working closely with my new colleagues in London, Brussels, Paris, the US, and across the globe to serve our clients in these rapidly evolving markets.”
