FTI Consulting uses its Compass Lexecon subsidiary to provide expert advice and testimony on complex anti-trust competition matters. We have assisted with many of the highest-profile anti-trust/competition and M&A actions and transactions of the last 30 years. We use leading industrial organisation theory and sophisticated economic and econometric analyses to uncover and explain the complex issues that define anti-trust/competition cases. Additional information on our capabilities in this area can be found at Compass Lexecon.
FTI Consulting’s Compass Lexecon subsidiary employs the largest group of world-renowned anti-trust/competition experts in the world.
We have evaluated hundreds of proposed mergers and acquisitions on behalf of both government agencies and private parties. Using rigorous analytical methods applied to complex data, we evaluate the likely effects of proposed mergers and acquisitions on prices, costs and competition.
FTI Consulting regularly assists both defendants and plaintiffs in anti-trust litigation, including cases involving price fixing, predatory pricing, bundling and various forms of allegedly exclusionary conduct. An integral part of our role in many of these cases involves the estimation of lost profits or damages from elevated prices and output restrictions.
