Competition and regulation
Competition in markets increases product variety, reduces prices and improves quality. Therefore, policies aim to ensure that competition is functional and as unrestricted as possible in the long term. This applies in particular to markets where competition is restricted or limited to a given extent, e.g. in the area of natural monopolies. The regulation of the market players is aimed at achieving competition-like behaviour of market players.
With our economic analyses we support our clients in competition as well as regulatory matters and taking advantage of given opportunities and mastering challenges. To this end, we analyse markets, potential competitive constraints, various forms of market failure and evaluate regulatory approaches as well as current legislative projects or amendments.
