For the 11th consecutive year, The Brattle Group has been named one of the world’s top firms for competition economics by Global Competition Review (GCR).

Brattle’s antitrust and competition practice boasts 60 economic experts across its offices in North America, Europe, and Australia. This practice is supported by a vast network of outside experts, including academics from prominent institutions such as Columbia University, Stanford University, Harvard Law School, the London School of Economics, UC Berkeley, Georgetown University, and Northeastern University.

“We are thrilled to once again be recognized as one of the leading global competition economics consultancies by GCR,” remarked senior competition principal James Reitzes. “Our firm is incredibly proud of the consistently high caliber of expert and consulting work we provide for our clients, as well as the reputation we’ve built within the global competition marketplace.”

In 2017, Brattle experts worked on 25 antitrust litigation matters, 9 mergers that proceeded on to a second request or Phase II investigation, and 12 government investigations. The firm’s expert analysis and testimony has been heard in U.S. federal and state courts, as well as Canadian and European tribunals. Several of the governmental matters relate to competition in European, Canadian, and U.S. financial, energy, and telecommunications markets.

The Brattle Group recently augmented its competition practice with the hiring of former Skadden partner James A. Keyte as the Director of Global Development. Mr. Keyte will play a key role in Brattle’s offering clients an unparalleled level of quality in terms of its economic consulting services. The firm also added Guy Ben-Ishai, former Chief Economist at the New York State’s Attorney General’s office, and Eliana Garcés, former Deputy Chief Economist at the European Commission, as principals.

GCR’s Economics 20 ranks firms using several criteria, including size of practice, number of nominations to Who’s Who Legal: Competition, reputation, and work over the past year.
