Niels Frank is a principal at Lademann & Associates. He studied economics with a focus on industrial organisation at the University of Hamburg and the Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel. Niels has more than 10 years of experience working on numerous antitrust matters involving the assessment of cartel damages (inter alia cement, car glass, TV advertising, sugar), the effects of horizontal and non-horizontal mergers (third party in Telefónica/E-Plus) as well as abuse of dominance cases concerning conditional rebates, bundling, and access to essential facilities. His industry experience includes fast-moving consumer goods, TV advertising, retailing, construction materials, business insurance, paper wholesale, airport infrastructure, telecommunications, and services related to the postal sector. Recently, Niels led the L&A team which was jointly retained as neutral economic experts by suppliers and buyers in the German market for fire engines to assess cartel damages and to propose a settlement solution. This project proved to be a novel and efficient alternative to damage litigation in court. Niels has published papers in the Journal of Competition Law and Economics, the Journal of European Competition Law and Practice, and Wirtschaft und Wettbewerb. Since 2007 Niels has lectured on competition economics and competition policy at the University of Bayreuth.
WWL says: Niels Frank is a highly regarded economist who possesses deep experience providing testimony in relation to cartel damage cases.
