ABA Teleconference: Data and Discovery for Economic Analysis in Antitrust Litigation

Fri, Mar 16, 2018, 12–1 pm

In this ABA teleconference, Principal Consultant Sophie Meadows will provide examples from recent cases to describe the use of large-scale data in the economic analysis of antitrust issues and how this relates to data discovery. The examples will include a study of market definition, an analysis of overcharge stemming from alleged conduct in direct purchaser cases, and the assessment of pass-through in an indirect purchaser case. Each example will focus on the economic analysis, the large-scale data required and its implications for discovery, as well as how courts relied upon the economic analysis to adjudicate the case.

This session is presented by the ABA Section of Antitrust Law as part of a series on Fundamentals of Antitrust Economics. In the series, distinguished economists teach basic economic principles related to antitrust analysis, including market definition, market power, competitive effects, econometrics, and other topics. The sessions will provide an introduction to concepts and techniques that appear repeatedly in the economic analysis of antitrust issues.

To attend in person, please register for the teleconference and join us in the Washington, DC office of Edgeworth Economics, located at 1111 19th Street NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC.
