For the second consecutive year, Global Competition Review has named Bates White in its "Economics 20," a listing of the world’s leading competition economics firms. Selection into this group of 20 firms is highly competitive and determined by an independent survey that analyzes nominated firms’ size, presence of leading economists, recent client successes, historical pedigree, and market visibility.
Global Competition Review recognized Bates White’s work supporting AMD in its landmark case against Intel and the firm’s subsequent involvement in the US Federal Trade Commission’s case against Intel. Also noted was Bates White’s current work in high-profile competition matters on behalf of AirTran Airways regarding an alleged conspiracy to introduce a first bag fee, its economic analysis related to the Brazilian competition authority′s merger review of Sadia/Perdigão to form Brasil Foods, and its expert testimony in a monopolization suit against Eaton Corporation, a manufacturer of heavy-duty truck transmissions. Global Competition Review also referenced Bates White’s work with its European partner ESMT Competition Analysis to support clients in European and German cartel proceedings.
Bates White’s Antitrust and Competition Practice comprises 77 competition specialists, including five economists (Douglas Bernheim, Halbert White, George Rozanski, Marius Schwartz, and Michael Whinston) recognized by Global Competition Review in its 2011 survey of leading competition economists, The International Who’s Who of Competition Economists.
