Compass Lexecon had a very successful year in 2010. We added new affiliations with several world-class experts including Robert Engle (a professor of finance at NYU and the winner of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics), Allen Ferrell (a professor of finance at Harvard Law School), Douglas Lichtman (a professor at UCLA and a nationally recognized expert in intellectual property rights), and Scott Meadow (a professor of private equity and entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago). As a result, our preeminent competition, finance, energy, intellectual property, and general litigation practices are now stronger than ever. We have developed cutting-edge expertise and experience in a range of areas, including credit markets, derivatives and credit default swaps, hedge funds, private equity, the use of innovative econometric techniques to analyze the competitive and synergistic effects of mergers (in particular with regard to hospital and airline mergers), economic analysis of the requirements for class certification, sophisticated tests of the competitive effects and rationales of challenged business practices, and the determinants of energy prices.
