Robin Noble is a partner in Oxera’s Oxford office and specialises in competition economics and quantifying damages in litigations and arbitrations. He led the Oxera team that worked together with DG Competition to develop a handbook to aid quantification of antitrust damages. He has a wide range of experience in damages matters, working on cases in the UK, the USA, the Netherlands, Cyprus, Romania, Germany and South Africa. He has been active on more than 40 of these cases in recent years, including cartel damages, exclusionary cases, breaches of contract, and investment treaty arbitrations. Notable examples include working with Nokia in its claim against the global LCD cartel, and acting for RWE Dea in defending a claim for damages related to its involvement in the paraffin waxes cartel. Robin has testifying and cross-examination experience, and has been formally appointed as expert in several cases.
Robin’s work in competition economics has included providing advice on mergers at the European Commission, UK Competition and Markets Authority, Ireland’s CCPC, and the South African Competition Tribunal in sectors such as retailing, aviation, rail, wholesaling, water, forestry and mineral extraction. He has published in peer-reviewed journals such as Global Competition Litigation Review and the Competition Law Journal, and has acted as a reviewer for articles in the Journal of Economic and Financial Sciences, European Journal of Law and Economics and the Journal of Antitrust Enforcement.
WWL says: He “knows everything there is to know about quantifying damages”, and was praised for his work with both regulators and high-level corporate clients
