Areas of focus:


Bates White’s Communications and Media Practice provides expert economic services in connection with a wide range of issues critical to these industries, including antitrust and merger analysis; discovery support; expert testimony; auction design; business planning and strategy; and support for state, federal, and international regulatory proceedings. Our professionals and affiliates have been at the forefront of regulatory and strategic issues facing communications firms, and our European alliance with E.CA Economics enhances our ability to provide services on an international scale.

Our experts played key roles in analyzing issues of net neutrality before the FCC and examining the competitive effects of high-profile mergers involving Internet search engines. Bates White’s portfolio of experience also includes work on network unbundling, wireless net neutrality, reverse auctions, the Internet backbone, Section 271 proceedings, a la carte pricing and exclusive dealing in cable, as well as large mergers and business consolidations. We are well-known for our deep, data-intensive empirical analysis and our ability to distill and communicate key economic concepts to attorneys, industry participants, and regulators.
