E.CA Economics is a renowned European economics consultancy that builds its case-related advice in the fields of competition policy and regulation on thorough research.

As a partner of ESMT Berlin, a leading business school in Germany, we can draw on the latest economic research. On transatlantic cases we work jointly with our US partner firm, Bates White LLC.
