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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
