Brattle is a market leader in providing economic and financial expertise related to regulatory, litigation, and arbitration matters for the natural gas and petroleum industries.
Our team works with global market participants, law firms, and regulatory agencies to solve complex economic issues related to every sector across the natural gas and petroleum landscape. We offer a unique combination of strong economic and finance expertise coupled with deep institutional knowledge of worldwide oil and gas markets and their regulation. Our strength lies in our ability to apply economic principles to complex issues that arise in oil and gas litigation, and communicate our analyses and opinions clearly and convincingly.
We provide economic and financial expert testimony in a number of areas, including commercial damages, ratemaking and regulation, antitrust, bankruptcy, and tax and royalties. In commercial litigation, clients frequently engage us to work on matters related to contract disputes, failed business transactions, fraudulent disclosure, market manipulation, and trade and treaty disputes. Our regulatory experience involves analyzing the reasonableness of rates charged by regulated entities and the competitiveness of all industry markets – exploration and production, midstream refining and processing, transportation and storage, and wholesale and end-use.
Our clients include natural gas and petroleum producers, pipeline and midstream companies, refiners, shippers, utilities, regulators, law firms, and governments in North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. We have testified in federal and state courts, federal and state regulatory agencies, and in various international arbitration forums.
