Health Care Products and Services

We provide economic analysis, expert testimony, and regulatory insight to support all phases of litigation pertaining to the health care industry.

Rising health care costs and growing concern over access to health care has created an environment in which producers of health care products and services face increased scrutiny of their business practices and pricing decisions. At the same time, contractual arrangements among industry participants are growing increasingly complex, and the patents that have been so important in the development of these industries face a wide array of challenges.

Economists at The Brattle Group have decades of experience working on cases involving every type of participant in these industries, including pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical device suppliers, insurers, government regulators, hospitals, physicians, pharmacy benefit managers, and others.

Brattle provides its clients with rigorous analysis while managing costs carefully in order to deliver the maximum net value to our clients. We are known for our close working relationships with leading academics and practitioners and for the clear and successful communication of economic and financial reasoning to clients, judges, juries, and other decision makers.
