Expert evidence

Our economic practice cooperates with the leading experts and research centers in the field of competition policy in Russia and internationally. Expert economic evidence (including that supported by consumers surveys) is used to validate and strengthen our clients’ position in courts and in the context of antitrust investigations. Our role is to make sure that experts clearly understand the matter at hand and their tasks, to check the completeness and accuracy of their analysis and explain the results and underlying methodology to our clients.

Also, our specialists are engaged in antitrust cases as independent experts within expert groups.
