ESMT Competition Analysis listed to Top 20 global competition economic firms

05.02.2010
Only three years after its inception, the competition consultancy arm of the international business school ESMT European School of Management and Technology, ESMT Competition Analysis (CA) has been named for the second time to Global Competition Review's Economics 20.

This annual survey of the world's top competition economics practices uses such criteria as quality of economists and recent successes and lists the top 20 in no specific order. Despite the economic and financial crisis of 2009, ESMT CA substantially increased its customer base and was involved in many globally relevant cases, including important merger cases.

ESMT CA was active on such diverse issues as the Oracle/Sun Microsystems merger complaint before DG Competition and appearing as court experts in the German cement cartel case. Global Competition Review writes, "The firm has had its fair share of headline-grabbing cases in 2009."

ESMT CA is the only German firm named in the global survey. "Despite the economic downturn, we were able to grow our business, in the area of M&As and beyond, due to our sustained reputation as research based consultancy with a strong European expertise," said Hans W. Friederiszick, ESMT CA Managing Director.

The economists at ESMT CA work exclusively on competition-related cases, and this competency benefits ESMT as a whole, since European competition and regulation are a focus of the school's research. "ESMT faculty members and CA economists work together closely and bring complementary knowledge and approaches to complex projects in and out of the classroom," said Lars-Hendrik Röller, ESMT President and former Chief Economist of the European Commission DG Competition.

"We saw an increase in private litigation this past year, a trend I believe will continue in the future given the advocacy by the EC Commission for stricter private enforcement at national level," concluded ESMT CA Managing Director Rainer Nitsche. "With our U.S. partner Bates Whites, LLC, who were also listed this year, we are well positioned in this field and will continue to serve global clients on both sides of the Atlantic."

About ESMT Competition Analysis
ESMT Competition Analysis (CA) is an economic consultancy which provides case-related advice and research on key topics in fields of competition policy and regulation. Members of the Competition Analysis team, made up of around 15 employees from six countries, not only advise Europe's major antitrust law firms and companies but also research and teach at ESMT. In 2009 ESMT Competition Analysis was first named in The Economics 20 survey by the Global Competition Review as one of the world's leading competition economics firms less than two years after its founding and has been listed again in 2010. It is the only German practice featured in this leading competition ranking.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
