The Brattle Group has been involved in many of the major cases involving alleged price fixing and other forms of collusion over the past twenty years. These include litigation involving auto parts, air cargo, raw milk, DRAMs, SRAMs, cardboard boxes, vitamins, silicon alloys, carbon fiber, pharmaceuticals, carpet, and airfares.

Our work has spanned a wide range of issues that arise in these types of cases, including:

  • Assessing whether the alleged conspiracy increased prices or decreased competition
  • Valuing the magnitude of these effects and providing analyses used in connection with settlement negotiations or as testimony regarding damages
  • Examining and responding to evidence put forth by opposing experts and counsel
  • Evaluating class certification issues
