Competition Economists Group (CEG) was created in 2007. The founders had a background working in economic consulting, regulated businesses and for competition authorities and wanted to create an economics consultancy that ranked with the best. In its 15 years, CEG has been consistently ranked amongst the top economics consultancies.
We have presented before competition and regulatory agencies, courts and arbitration tribunals. CEG has won many significant, and often complex, cases for clients. From the outset, CEG was involved in the Deutsche Telekom / Vivendi arbitration, the then largest telecom arbitration in Europe. We have provided advice for cartel defendants before competition authorities; gained billions of dollars for companies re-claiming the cost of gas; and secured ground-breaking competition damages for Sainsbury’s in the UK on payment cards. We have also been instrumental in stopping the BHP / Rio Tinto transaction. CEG has therefore a proven record of focussed, dependable advice and analysis that achieves results no matter how large or complex the matter.
