Competition Economics

From mergers and joint ventures to the very ways firms wield their market strength, competition law supports a level playing field. As competition economics advisors, our experts use economic theory and statistical techniques to analyse the effects on market power of the strategies of businesses.

Competition economics advisory: navigating the landscape of market power

With shifting market dynamics, competition law plays a pivotal role, ensuring firms with significant market power operate within just bounds. It curtails their capacity to merge, initiate joint ventures, or misuse their market dominance. Additionally, it sets guardrails against certain agreements with rivals and consumers.
