International consultancy the Brattle Group provides economic analysis and expert testimony on antitrust and competition matters in a wide range of industries throughout the world. Recent additions to the firm’s competition practice include principal Andy Harington, who is based in the Toronto office and has been recognised as an expert in the quantification of efficiencies. The firm recently opened a Sydney office, which will provide support to clients in the Asia-Pacific region on matters relating to competition.

In the past year, Brattle has worked on two deals that have proceeded on to a second request or Phase II investigation. These transactions have been reviewed, or are being reviewed, in North America and no clients have authorised the firm to discuss them.

While also not being able to discuss litigation efforts, Brattle has been involved in 26 competition law litigation matters in the past year, which have been heard in US federal and state courts, as well as Canadian and European tribunals. Lastly, Brattle has been involved in 20 government antitrust or competition law investigations over the past year, many relating to European, Canadian and US financial and energy markets. Additionally, the firm assisted several electricity suppliers in opposing a government investigation and fine, although that matter is also confidential.
