Compass Lexecon "Towers Over Its Rivals," According to New Global Competition Review Survey

1 minute read


We are pleased to announce that Compass Lexecon, for the eighth straight year, was named one of the best competition economics firms in the world by the Global Competition Review (GCR) in its annual Economics 20 survey. This year, GCR concluded that Compass Lexecon "towers over its rivals" and "continues its impressive growth" with the most competition specialists - 282 professionals and twenty-seven Who's Who Legal nominees, including Nobel Prize winners, six former chief economists of the Department of Justice's antitrust division, two former chief economists of the Federal Communications Commission, a former chief economist of the Federal Trade Commission, as well as other prominent and recognized leaders in the competition economics field.

In its review of Compass Lexecon, GCR highlights that Compass Lexecon continues to be retained on the largest and most complex transactions to face antitrust scrutiny, including AT&T/T-Mobile, Microsoft/Skype, Express Scripts/Medco, Deutsche Börse/NYSE, Google/Motorola Mobility, and Verizon's acquisition of spectrum assets.

Selection into the GCR's Economics 20 is determined by an independent survey that considers the size of the consulting firm, its reputation, visibility and historical pedigree, the work it has undertaken over the past year, and the quality of the individuals working at the firm.

A new version of Compass Lexecon is available.
