Dr. Deng specializes in applying economic and econometric tools to gain insight into key issues, and then presenting the results in a way that is easy for the audience to understand. She has been recognized by Global Competition Review as “highly regarded, with sought-after expertise on advising Chinese companies on US antitrust law, and vice versa.”

Dr. Deng has consulted extensively for clients faced with litigation and commercial disputes in the United States.

Dr. Deng has also been actively involved in providing advice and comments to all three of China’s antitrust agencies regarding their guidelines and procedures, and was a guest lecturer on competition economics at Renmin University in Beijing.

Dr. Deng also has substantial experience assisting clients in ITC 337 cases, providing economic analysis of the likely effects of an exclusion order on the public interest, the existence of a domestic industry protected by the asserted patents, and the appropriate bond.
