COMMODITIES

Fideres has been crucial to the filing and prosecution of a number of high-profile US commodities cases. Our successes in this area have included our novel microeconomic analysis of pricing and cost structures in the meatpacking and DRAM industries, and our use of complex auction pricing data from precious metal futures markets to show how these commodities were systematically overpriced by cartels. Sample cases include:

  • Pork packaged meat producers antitrust class action, US – pre-filing economic analysis including plus factors and evidence of collusion, 0:18-cv-1776
