About Bates White

Bates White is an economic consulting firm offering services to law firms, Fortune 500 companies, and government agencies. We specialize in advanced economic, financial, and econometric analysis and excel at complex matters that require sophisticated problem solving and deep empirical analysis.

Established in 1999 and privately held, we attribute much of our success to a culture where bright minds from diverse backgrounds come together to solve difficult challenges facing today’s decision makers. We build strong, collaborative relationships with our clients, within our team, and in the community. Our firm is distinguished by the strength of our collective experiences—intellectual and analytical rigor, creativity, responsiveness, and practical know-how. We have been recognized by The Washington Post as a Top Workplace, named a Top 50 Consulting Firm by Vault, and cited as a Top 21 Economics Firm by Global Competition Review.

In each matter, we take a hands-on approach to develop a deep understanding of relevant industry, factual, and legal contexts. We are consistently recognized for an ability to support our opinions with sound economic theory and rigorous empirical analyses that withstand intense scrutiny. Our experts are noted for their ability to communicate clearly, succinctly, and persuasively to litigators, judges, juries, and government enforcers.

From consultant to partner, Bates White professionals exemplify a commitment to working together, leveraging individual strengths to ensure that our clients always benefit from the best possible team. With extensive experience in the application of economics to a wide range of industries and issues, most of our professionals hold PhD or master’s level degrees. We complement our in-house expertise through an extensive network of leading academics and industry experts. Many of our senior staff and academic affiliates have significant government agency experience.
