RBB Economics is an independent economics consultancy specialising in competition policy.
We are one of the largest competition economics practices in the world with offices in London, Brussels, The Hague, Johannesburg, Melbourne, Madrid, Stockholm, Paris and Düsseldorf.
Our work concerns the behaviour of firms with market power, and covers issues such as mergers, vertical agreements, joint ventures, price setting and the abuse of dominant positions.
With a wealth of analytical and economic expertise, we take on the most complex competition law assignments in multiple jurisdictions, advising on hundreds of high-profile cases every year. We work on the majority of EU Phase II mergers and are also very active in non-merger work globally.
Our approach is shaped by our commitment to providing robust, clear and effective advice to clients. To deliver on this commitment we focus on the key issues in each case. We combine economic theory and sophisticated empirical techniques to develop arguments that are clear, credible and compelling. In so doing, we always reflect the market realities of a particular industry and the real-world dynamics of competition that our clients face. Moreover, we present our analysis and evidence in an accessible and comprehensible manner.
We work in dedicated teams which combine the experience and expertise relevant to each case. This enables us to respond to our clients’ needs in a focused and flexible manner. We offer a hands-on service, supporting and working in partnership with our clients and their legal advisers.
Furthermore, we don’t focus our expertise in any one particular market or sector. Where we excel is in applying competition law economics to cases of varying scope and complexity. Whatever the assignment, whatever the industry, whatever the jurisdiction, we have the knowledge and skills to deliver high-quality analysis and advice.
