Effective and timely advice, based on robust economic analysis.

We contribute substantial value for our clients by providing tailor-made advice built on thorough economic analyses. We deliver robust results and a clear exposition.


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.

With our international team of over 25 professional economists, five of whom have been nominated by the Who’s Who Competition Economist as outstanding experts, we covered projects in more than ten jurisdictions last year.
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.

E.CA Economics has been named in Global Competition Review’s annual ranking of the top 20 competition economics groups since 2008.
