Horizontal Agreements

Horizontal agreements are collaborations or arrangements between competitors at the same level of the supply chain within the same market. Such agreements differ from vertical agreements, e.g., between a supplier and a customer. While some horizontal cooperation agreements, such as joint ventures or R&D collaborations, can have pro-competitive benefits, others are anticompetitive—essentially constituting collusion or effectively creating a cartel and harm consumers. This harm can take the form of higher prices, reduced output, decreased efficiency, and lower quality. Clients rely on Econ One’s antitrust experts for their ability to assess the impact of anticompetitive horizontal agreements and their ability to deliver comprehensive expert reports and expert testimony before courts and regulatory agencies.

Econ One’s global team of experienced antitrust economists have worked on some of the most intricate and high-stakes antitrust cases involving anticompetitive horizontal agreements across a diverse range of industries. Utilizing cutting-edge econometric models and data analysis techniques, our experts examine factors relevant to the case, including market power, pricing patterns, and other important information, to assess the anticompetitive effects.

Econ One’s deep understanding of economic theory paired with the capability to analyze large amounts of data results in Econ One being a trusted partner in navigating the complexities of horizontal agreements.
