In a market increasingly characterized by M&A activity, Bates White has the theoretical, empirical, and communication skills needed to guide clients through all phases of antitrust analysis. Our work emphasizes applying quantitative methods to determine competitive effects, define product and geographic markets, and analyze the likely impact of entry. From pre-filing risk assessment to expert testimony in litigation, we balance rigor with clear analyses, reports, and presentations, so even the most complex economic issues are understandable.

Whether we are working with the merging parties, a government agency, or a third party, our in-house professionals and academic and industry affiliates bring significant credibility. Through years of working in and with the agencies, we’ve established a reputation for quality and trustworthiness and developed the knowledge necessary to successfully navigate regulatory proceedings. We harness diverse perspectives from our experts and support staff, working together to perform analyses and provide guidance that are accurately tailored to each situation. This follows from our commitment to full transparency and a spirit of collaboration that is a bedrock of our culture.
