Antitrust & Competition: Damages


Compass Lexecon has unparalleled experience in estimating potential damages from alleged or proven antitrust infringements.

Our economists blend rigorous analysis, industry insight, and understanding of market dynamics to ensure our clients receive thorough and credible assessments tailored to their circumstances.

Our track record spans a wide array of cases in diverse industries, advising both defendants and claimants. Renowned for our commitment to excellence, our team of testifying experts is widely recognized for their robust analysis, compelling argumentation, and clear communication style.

The core of any damages case is understanding and articulating the counterfactual scenario: what would have been, against which the impact of anti-competitive conduct can be measured. Working closely with our clients, we delve into their business operations to understand how they affect the intricate drivers and dynamics of competition and prices. Selecting the right techniques for the circumstances, we tailor our methodology to each case's unique needs, ensuring the most accurate and precise estimation of damages possible, and placing uncertainty in the appropriate context.

We have provided expert testimony and presentations to courts, regulatory agencies, and arbitrators, around the globe, including:

  • In the United States, presenting evidence to federal and state courts, federal and state regulatory bodies – such as the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and others – as well as various arbitration panels;
