About NERA Economic Consulting

NERA’s antitrust and competition economists employ economic theory and quantitative methods, grounded in a thorough understanding of the market, to provide a full range of theoretical and empirical economic analysis and testimony in matters involving mergers and acquisitions, antitrust litigation, and competition policy. They analyze the entire range of economic issues that arise in antitrust cases, including market definition, market dynamics, entry conditions, pricing, single firm conduct, agreements, and profitability. NERA's experts assess and, when appropriate, testify to the economic merits of allegations of anticompetitive mergers and acquisitions, foreclosure and exclusionary conduct, horizontal and vertical restraints, monopolization and abuse of dominant position, and collusion. NERA's experts also have extensive experience estimating damages in antitrust matters, as well as assessing the appropriateness of class certification.


Given the increased cross-border coordination among enforcement agencies related to antitrust violations, and the potential for increased private litigation in which plaintiffs allege damages, companies are increasingly focused on compliance and risk mitigation. While antitrust damages claims are common place in the U.S., attention to damages quantification is also growing in other parts of the world, particularly in Europe, where a large number of cartel cases have been reported. Last year, the European Union’s Damages Directive was implemented to help victims of anti-competitive conduct exercise their rights to full compensation.

Considering the significant changes imposed by the Directive and the ever-changing competition landscape, it is imperative for companies to keep abreast of recent regulatory updates and to establish effective antitrust compliance programs in order to minimize risks.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to antitrust damages. Speakers will also discuss economic and legal considerations, risk mitigation techniques and best practices for managing an effective antitrust compliance program.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

• Antitrust Damages – An Overview
• Recent Changes and Developments
• Economic and Legal Considerations
• Litigation Trends and Challenges
• Potential Implications for the Competition Litigation Landscape
• Risk Assessment Strategies
• Best Practices
