Over the last several decades, Brattle’s experts have developed innovative methods to estimate the cost of capital at a line of business level.

We assist companies that are considering vertical disintegration, facing radical changes to their cost structure, and entering foreign markets. These techniques supplement traditional measures with structured models of risk and careful analogies to other industries or timeframes. We frequently provide expert testimony before regulatory bodies, courts, and arbitration panels worldwide regarding the appropriate cost of capital, allowed rate of return, and discount rates.
