Dr. Pedro Gonzaga is a passionate competition economist who loves applying industrial economics to support clients in competition and antitrust matters.

Pedro is experienced in managing competition projects that require advanced economic modeling, intricate data analysis, and a thorough understanding of the relevant economic literature and case law. He is skilled in clearly explaining the complex economic theory that he and his teams apply to competition matters. Pedro has developed and published reports on several topical antitrust areas, including horizontal and vertical mergers in dynamic markets, abuse of dominance and vertical restraints in e-commerce, and algorithmic collusion. He has presented his work to private clients, enforcers, regulators, auditors, and policy makers, in both private meetings and international conferences.

Before joining Brattle, Pedro gained substantive experience through his academic work, research, and multiple positions at the OECD Competition Division.
