Allegro Consulting provides expert advice for companies in cartel investigations. In the case of tacit coordination (which is not prohibited by regulations per se) the economics of horizontal agreements require a rigorous assessment of the market characteristics.

In case of horizontal agreements, the followings should be considered:

  • Market transparency;
  • Market structure (stable or varying demand/supply conditions, entry barriers, level of innovation etc.);
  • Effectiveness of the coordination;
  • Mechanisms of retaliation.

On request, Allegro Consulting can prepare an assessment of the market data that supports your company’s case in front of the competition authorities.

In addition, as a follow-up to cartel decisions Allegro Consulting also provides economic and quantitative assessment of cartel damages.
