Navigant’s experts have deep experience analyzing and testifying in antitrust disputes — including antitrust class-action litigation and antitrust counterclaims. Our analysis is supported by a leading framework that we use to evaluate risk mitigation strategies. Key areas of expertise include:
- Anti-competitive horizontal agreements: price fixing, bid-rigging, and potential anti-competitive effects of joint ventures.
- Unilateral conduct: predatory pricing, refusals to deal, monopolization via patent fraud.
- Vertical restraints: exclusive dealing, requirements contracting, price squeezing, tying, loyalty rebates, anti-steering provisions, and bundling.
- Mergers and acquisitions: detailed economic and econometric analyses, diversion analysis, pricing pressure measures, merger simulation, event studies, and other analyses that are useful for determining the likely effects of a merger.
We assist and advise companies involved in business-critical mergers across a wide range of industries.
