Stefano Trento is a Senior Vice President at Compass Lexecon based in Madrid. He has many years of experience in the analysis of markets and competition, first as an academic at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics and the UAB, and – since 2011 – as a consultant at Compass Lexecon in London and Madrid.

Stefano has assisted legal teams in a large number of Article 102 TFEU cases (including in major cellular standard-essential patent cases), Article 101 TFEU cases (including for several retailers in the litigations against MasterCard and Visa before the UK High Court, Court of Appeal, and Supreme Court), and follow-on damages claims (including in relation to the pan-European truck manufacturers damages litigation).

His advisory work also covers judicial challenges to regulatory measures (including for British American Tobacco in the context of tobacco plain packaging regulation, and for Hutchison 3G in the context of a termination rate appeal at the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal), and merger review both at the EU level (Hutchison 3G / O2 Ireland) and at the UK level (BT / EE).
