Dr Addanki specialises in antitrust, intellectual property, and the evaluation of commercial damages.
In the antitrust area, Dr Addanki has analysed the competitive consequences of numerous mergers in a wide range of industries and has frequently presented the results of his analyses to US antitrust agencies and courts. He has also been retained by US and foreign antitrust agencies to serve as their outside consulting and testifying expert in their ongoing investigations. He has addressed liability and damages issues involving allegations of predatory pricing, monopolisation, price discrimination, resale price maintenance, tying, and other antitrust violations.
Many of Dr Addanki's antitrust inquiries have focused specifically on intellectual property and its unique role in the analysis of market power and competitive effects. In the intellectual property area more generally, he has evaluated economic damages in cases involving patent infringement, trade secrets, trade dress, Lanham Act violations, and other claims.
Dr Addanki has also evaluated liability and damages issues in many other settings. He has calculated economic damages in cases involving allegations of breach of contract, fraud, and misrepresentation, among many other issues. He has also studied commodity futures markets in several cases involving allegations of market manipulation.
Dr Addanki has testified before the US Senate, state and federal courts, the US Federal Trade Commission, and various other tribunals and courts in the US and abroad. His articles and speeches have been invited and published by the American Bar Association, the Practicing Law Institute, European Competition Law Review, and many other comparable institutions.
