Antitrust Expert and Former Federal Trade Commission Economist John Simpson Joins The Brattle Group

The Brattle Group is pleased to announce that it has expanded its antitrust practice with the addition of John Simpson, a senior consultant based in the firm’s Washington, DC office. Dr. John Simpson is an expert in analyzing the competitive effects of mergers, acquisitions, and various business practices across a range of industries. He joins Brattle after twenty years at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), during which time he served as the FTC’s primary economic expert in three successful merger challenges: FTC v. Swedish Match, FTC v. Chicago Bridge, and FTC v. Polypore. He also recently led a team of economists in providing litigation support to the FTC in the Matter of Intel Corporation. “The addition of John to our antitrust practice significantly strengthens our team, by both broadening our industry expertise and deepening our FTC experience,” said Dr. Robert Reynolds, head of the firm’s antitrust practice. Brattle’s team of antitrust economists provides consulting, expert testimony, and litigation support in all areas of antitrust and competition economics, including mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures; price fixing and collusion; and monopolization, abuse of dominance, exclusionary practices, and other competitive effects. Our experts have appeared on behalf of clients in federal and state courts, before the major federal antitrust and regulatory agencies, and before competition authorities in countries around the world.
