Focus on
Antitrust

Helping clients achieve their ideal outcomes in antitrust cases.

Antitrust issues may involve a potentially anticompetitive agreement between a group of competitors or between a supplier and its customer(s), and/or concerns about the behaviour of a large company. Whether it’s an investigation into such behaviour launched by a regulator or competition authority, or a lawsuit brought by another company, such issues can have far-reaching consequences for businesses involved and the market.

Oxera works closely with clients facing or making such allegations, and their legal advisers, providing economic inputs to assess the client’s case. We combine our economic expertise with sector insight to prepare expert reports and compelling testimony to courts and competition authorities. Where appropriate, we also help design remedies to suit the needs of our clients while satisfying the authorities.
