Overview

Bates White’s Energy and Finance professionals have been involved in an array of commodity, securities, and derivatives markets cases, including alleged manipulation, fraud, and other trading practices. We are known for our ability to combine our vast energy industry expertise, state-of-the-art analytical tools, and rigorous economic and financial analyses into easy-to-understand, compelling terms that provide our clients with the support and defensible expert testimony necessary in high-stakes litigation.

We provide expert consulting and testimony to evaluate a wide range of situations where questions of competitive behavior might arise, such as transactions between regulated and unregulated affiliates, mergers and acquisitions, access to transportation systems and other constrained facilities, and market-based pricing. We advise clients on the economic, financial, and regulatory implications of mergers and acquisitions in energy markets, and we provide rigorous and defensible quantitative analyses of market power issues. We have extensive experience providing market monitoring on behalf of the FTC, as well as consulting services and expert testimony in proceedings before the Courts, FERC, and state public utility commissions.
