Forensic Economics Expert to Evaluate Predatory Pricing Claims
A forensic economics expert was needed to evaluate predatory pricing claims for an antitrust case. The plaintiff lost a contract for a government subsidy program, resulting in their product being removed from some store shelves. The plaintiff claimed the defendant won the contract by engaging in predatory pricing practices and because sales associated with the government subsidy program were such a large portion of the market, it was driven from the market. The plaintiff alleged that the defendant maintained a dominant share of the market and priced their product below the average variable cost, the average marginal cost, and the total average cost.
