About E.CA Economics

E.CA Economics is one of the leading economic consultancy firms providing case-related advice and research in the competition policy and regulation fields. Our work includes mergers, antitrust and state aid cases, economic analyses within regulatory procedures and studies on competition policy issues for international organisations. Our headquarters are in central Berlin with offices in Brussels, London and Munich as well. We work as one team across offices and our main language is English.

We work in close partnership with a leading US consultancy, Bates White, and the international business school ESMT Berlin as well as a number of leading experts in the competition field. Throughout our history, we have built an excellent reputation for reliable and high-quality analysis, and have established ourselves as a key player in the European economic consulting market.

About the role

Our Economists use economic theory and econometrics and other facts based and in-depth data analyses to address some of the most pressing competition issues of the day and help clients engage with authorities and courts in a full spectrum of competition proceedings.

You will be instrumental in the production of expert economic reports and other submissions, and have the chance to advise our clients and their legal teams in both transactional and contentious matters.
