About

The Brattle Group answers complex economic, regulatory, and financial questions for corporations, law firms, and governments around the world.

We believe that astute insights are the result of extraordinary effort, respect for details, and a passion for principles. When presented with a challenge, we work tirelessly to provide clear, independent answers. And we stand behind them, because inconvenient truths are better than the false comforts derived from opinions that cannot withstand scrutiny.

In the face of complex challenges, we present the truth of the matter, through the relentless pursuit of professionalism and rigorous analysis.

Firm History

The Brattle Group originated in 1990 with five principals dedicated to integrity and excellence in economic and financial consulting. In 1995, Brattle combined with Incentives Research, Incorporated to strengthen its expertise in energy matters and opened its first office in Cambridge.

Since then, the firm has expanded throughout the United States and Europe to more than 300 people. We opened in Washington, DC in 1996 with a focus on regulation, antitrust, and public policy. In 1997, we entered Europe with an office in London. In 2002, we opened our San Francisco office with Nobel laureate Dan McFadden to be closer to our litigation and utility clients on the west coast and in the Pacific Rim.

We expanded into Madrid and Rome starting in 2009, and we are now recognized as a top consultancy on energy, finance, and competition throughout the European Union.

In 2013 we opened a New York office, providing a home base in one of the most important financial and legal markets. We opened a Toronto office in 2015, allowing us to respond quickly and effectively to the legal and business challenges facing our Canadian clients. Most recently, we opened a Sydney office, allowing us to support our clients in Australia and the greater Asia-Pacific region with face-to-face collaboration and efficient access to Brattle’s global resources.

Throughout this growth, our goal has remained to serve clients with thoughtful and analytically rigorous work in an atmosphere that values excellence, teamwork, and dedication.
