Effective competition promotes low prices, enhances consumer choice, and facilitates innovation; however, public policy and regulation may restrict competition, reducing its benefits to consumers. Improving or eliminating excessive and unwarranted legislation, regulation, and other governmental barriers helps foster competition, thereby stimulating economic growth.

Many of our engagements involve the assessment of effective competition across a range of industries. We provide advanced theoretical and empirical analyses of market characteristics and competitive drivers. Our capabilities allow us to assess the impact of economic policy changes or decisions on competition. Where an anticompetitive impact is identified, we are able to assist regulatory authorities and private and public companies to streamline rules and regulations to ease or abolish this negative impact on the competitive process.
