Telecoms and Broadcasting Regulation
The Economic and Financial Consulting practice of FTI Consulting provides clients with clear and rigorous analysis of the complex economic and financial issues that is needed in legal and regulatory proceedings, strategic decisions and public policy debates.
We have expertise in telecoms costing, economics, regulation and business and understand how to bring together thinking in these areas to get to the right answer. Our litigation expertise means that the answers we develop are robust to challenge. We have helped incumbents, new entrants and regulators in all areas of regulation including regulatory policy and strategy, the regulatory mechanics of market analysis and price setting, and support in appeals and dispute cases.
Most recently we have been helping BT in a dispute relating to cost orientation, providing expert witness support to the appeal proceedings at the Competition Appeals Tribunal and also assessing Ofcom’s proposals to reform the regulatory financial reporting regime.
