If a business has acquired a dominant position in a market, it may face special restrictions on its practices to ensure that it does not abuse its position.
It is often impossible to distinguish between anti-competitive and legitimate forms of conduct without careful scrutiny of the prices, costs, and behaviours of the firms involved and the features of the markets in which they operate.
We specialise in assessing these behaviours and features to identify whether there is evidence of harmful, exploitative or exclusionary conduct, including:
- Excessive and discriminatory pricing
- Predatory pricing, cross-subsidy and exclusionary discounts
- Product bundling and tying
- Refusal to supply and exclusionary vertical restraints
