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.
