May 12, 2015 • Los Angeles, CA

Starts: 12:00 PM (PDT)
Ends: 1:30 PM (PDT)
Site: Los Angeles County Bar Association
Address: 1055 West 7th Street, 27th Floor, Los Angeles, CA

Statistics are commonly used in larger antitrust and unfair competition cases, as well as merger investigations. Several topics will be addressed at this lunch program, including the uses and abuses of statistics, what regression analysis can and cannot answer, why it is common for opposing experts to arrive at very different results, and how counsel can leverage empirical evidence to shape outcomes in litigation and regulatory proceedings.  

This program features three panelists highly experienced in using statistical analysis of competition issues in litigation and regulatory proceedings. Jon Tomlin, Principal, Navigant Economics, and Aren Megerdichian, Vice President, Compass Lexecon, are professional economists, both with years of experience conducting economic analyses for litigation and investigations. Lisa Kimmel, Senior Counsel, Crowell & Moring, practices antitrust in the technology and health care sectors, most recently as an attorney advisor on antitrust and competition policy matters at the Federal Trade Commission for Commissioner and Chair Edith Ramirez.
