About The Brattle Group Europe
The Brattle Group answers complex economic, regulatory, and finance questions for corporations, law firms, and governments around the world. Originating in 1990 as a five-person outfit, Brattle combined with Incentives Research, Incorporated in 1995 to strengthen its expertise in energy matters and opened its first office in Cambridge. Today, the firm's 350-plus employees – working from 11 offices in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific – serve a number of industries, including energy (such as electric power, infrastructure, natural gas, and petroleum), financial institutions, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, telecom, and media.
Where its energy lies
Brattle specializes in providing analysis and expert consulting related to energy, finance, and litigation matters for clients throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific region. Leading corporations and financial institutions call on Brattle when faced with litigation, regulatory, and policy questions concerning securities, tax and transfer pricing, commercial transactions, due diligence, structured finance, risk management, asset valuation, pricing of services, profitability, cost of capital, transportation and infrastructure, intellectual property, and antitrust issues. These clients – including companies in the energy, finance, telecom, media, internet and IT, healthcare, sports, and entertainment sectors – also call upon Brattle to provide business valuation and private advisory analyses.
Brattle is regularly brought in to assist with high-profile, high-stakes disputes and international arbitrations. Its antitrust and competition experts have worked on some of the largest mergers, or attempted mergers, in over 50 industries.
In the energy sector, one of Brattle's major practice areas, it services clients in the electric, natural gas, and petroleum areas. The firm assists investor-owned utilities, public utilities, electricity and pipeline customers, power generators, transmission organizations, and regulatory authorities with planning, regulation, and litigation efforts. For electricity market participants, they provide business strategy support and help with developing (or responding to) new market designs and regulatory frameworks. It provides gas clients – whether involved in production, marketing, or transport – with expert testimony and consulting services in regulatory and legal disputes over pricing, prudence and cost recovery, access, and contract performance. The firm also has growing practices in integrated resource planning, energy storage, and the design and implementation of "Utility of the Future" initiatives.
Brattle refers to its consultants collectively as a team, and its chain of command is structured flatly to encourage input from individuals of any level. Brattle's principals are longtime experts in their respective areas, with advanced degrees in economics, finance, management, and engineering from top universities around the world. Its cadre of senior principals includes Nobel Laureate Daniel McFadden of the University of California, Berkeley & University of Southern California; and Stewart Myers of MIT's Sloan School of Management, coauthor of the graduate-level textbook: Principals of Corporate Finance. The firm's experts also draw on a network of advisors that includes renowned academics and former government officials, such as the former chief economist for the U.S. Federal Communications Commission and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and deans and faculty at academic institutions such as MIT, Columbia, Duke University, NYU, The University of Chicago, Stanford, and London Business School.
Putting their money where their mouth is
When it comes to pro bono and community service efforts, Brattle’s belief in those core values drives the firm’s commitment to a fair, impartial, and fact-driven judicial system. Their consultants partner with leading law firms’ pro bono committees as well as nonprofits such as the ACLU, the NAACP, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights to provide expert testimony, reports, economic analyses, and data management. Brattle’s pro bono cases have involved issues as wide-ranging as criminal justice reform, voting rights, modern-day debtors’ prisons, and refugee resettlement. Numerous consultants cite their pro bono work among the highlights of their experience at Brattle.
