FIRM HISTORY

The Brattle Group originated in 1990 with five principals dedicated to integrity and excellence in economic and financial consulting. In 1995, Brattle combined with Incentives Research, Incorporated to strengthen its expertise in energy matters and opened its first office in Cambridge.

Since then, the firm has expanded throughout the United States and Europe to more than 400 people. We opened in Washington, DC in 1996 with a focus on regulation, antitrust, and public policy. In 1997, we entered Europe with an office in London. In 2002, we opened our San Francisco office with Nobel laureate Dan McFadden to be closer to our litigation and utility clients on the west coast and in the Pacific Rim.

We expanded into Madrid and Rome starting in 2009, and we are now recognized as a top consultancy on energy, finance, and competition throughout the European Union.


In 2013 we opened a New York office, providing a home base in one of the most important financial and legal markets. We opened a Toronto office in 2015, allowing us to respond quickly and effectively to the legal and business challenges facing our Canadian clients. Our Sydney office opened in 2016, allowing us to support our clients in Australia and the greater Asia-Pacific region with face-to-face collaboration and efficient access to Brattle’s global resources.

Brattle’s headquarters relocated from Cambridge to Boston in 2017 to accommodate the firm’s continued growth and provide a modern environment that fosters collaboration and innovation.

Throughout this growth, our goal has remained to serve clients with thoughtful and analytically rigorous work in an atmosphere that values excellence, teamwork, and dedication.
