Competitive Economics Expert for Conspiracy Case
A competitive economics expert with linen industry knowledge was needed for a conspiracy case alleging violations of the Sherman Act. The defendants, two linen suppliers in the Northeastern U.S., were charged with conspiring to restrain interstate trade and commerce by agreeing not to compete for customers.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to find an expert in competitive economics who could address economic conditions, behaviors, and competition specific to the linen industry. Our client thought the expert might be an economist, an investment banker, an attorney, a chief executive officer or chief financial officer from the linen industry, or an officer in a linen industry trade association. Regardless of the expert's profession, he or she needed deep understanding of the economics of the linen industry and its habitual competitive conduct in order to address the antitrust allegations.
