How We Can Help
Kroll's economists help businesses through the course of disputes and investigations, by providing critical analyses and expert testimony as may be needed.
Our expert services help clients across a range of economic issues:
Assisting with advice and analysis for both liability and quantum assessments. Our economists develop credible economic counterfactuals and consider the relative significance of heads of claims. We enable businesses to respond confidently to complex commercial litigation questions where market impacts are felt.
Helping listed firms or institutional investors achieve fair assessments of the economic effects of events that trigger market moves. Our event studies help identify relevant benchmarks and determine but-for share prices. Our experts also provide detailed portfolio and claimant modelling to assess the quantum of investor losses. Outside equities, we also help clients with debt and derivative market issues and with execution matters.
Claims and market investigations, assisting with follow-on damages claims, our experts are able to estimate the extent of any potential overcharge from a cartel and consider the scope of any pass-on effects. Through the course of investigations, we can help clients with core competition economics issues such as market delineation exercises, market power assessments, merger simulation modelling and advice on anti-competitive agreements, merger clearances and state aid issues.
Financial Conduct and Behavioral Regulation
