less than a minute read


Compass Lexecon economist Mary Coleman was retained by William Berkowitz of Bingham McCutchen LLP and Joseph Tringali of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP to conduct an economic analysis of the proposed acquisition of Sealy by Tempur-Pedic. Dr. Coleman was supported by a Compass Lexecon team including David Weiskopf, Steve Peterson, Bo Bourke, Syre Khan, and David Foster. Compass Lexecon interacted extensively with counsel and conducted a number of economic analyses. After issuing a second request for additional information, the FTC closed its investigation and cleared the acquisition on March 18, 2013.
