Compass Lexecon expert, Professor Jonathan Baker was retained by Howard Morse of Cooley LLP to assist in securing DOJ approval for a merger between Objet and Stratasys, two of the top manufacturers of 3D printers. Compass Lexecon assisted in formulating arguments that suggested, based on data analysis and a review of industry materials, that the products of the two companies were more likely to be complements than substitutes, and therefore the merger should not raise competitive concerns. These arguments were presented to the DOJ, which granted early termination. Professor Baker was supported by Yair Eilat and Colleen Mallahan from our Oakland office.
