Expert witness & litigation support

Robust economic analysis can be a decisive factor in support of competition and trade practices litigation as well as in commercial arbitration processes.

The ability to combine in-depth industry expertise with highly-credible, rigorous and well-grounded analysis that can withstand critical scrutiny is essential for optimal outcomes in such situations. So too is the ability to work effectively alongside the client’s legal advisers, to present analytical results clearly and precisely, and to provide insightful, objective critical analysis of opposing expert submissions.
