Cartels

Firms in a cartel collude to engage in anti-competitive conduct such as price-fixing, market allocation, bid-rigging, or other competitive restraints. Such conduct can harm businesses and/or consumers (or workers in employment markets). Collusion violates antitrust laws including the Sherman Act in the United States. Clients turn to Econ One’s antitrust experts to analyze alleged collusive conduct, quantify resulting damages, and testify before courts and regulatory agencies as to their findings.

Econ One’s antitrust experts have worked on some of the largest and most complex antitrust cases involving cartels across numerous industries. We also consult on identifying collusive conduct outside the scope of litigation, for private investigations as well as regulatory reviews. Our economic analyses to uncover and assess the effects of collusive conduct on the market are rigorous and founded on solid economic frameworks. Econ One experts employ advanced econometric models and data analysis techniques to examine pricing patterns and market structure to determine what impact the conduct had on prices and consumers (or employees in the case of collusive employment practices).

Econ One experts have a deep understanding of industrial organization and competition economics as it applies to cartel cases involving price-fixing, market allocation, bid-rigging, and more.  Our expertise in working with large amounts of data, understanding and communicating complex economic theory enables us to provide clear and persuasive expert reports and testimony in court.
