Cartels and Horizontal Agreements

We are experts in the assessment of the competitive effects of horizontal agreements.

There are many forms of horizontal alignment, including price fixing, information exchange, capacity coordination, bid rigging, collective purchasing, joint selling, and R&D cooperation. Whatever the issue, we analyse how the agreement impacts competition and substantiate any resulting efficiencies, technological progress or environmental benefits. We also have considerable experience of estimating damages arising from anti-competitive agreements, whether to direct or indirect customers.

Our company has had great success using RBB experts in cartel damages cases in court. They find credible, creative solutions and show real teamwork in their interactions with us as well as the team of lawyers.

We have unrivalled experience across the full range of issues presented by competition law and associated litigation.
