Who's Who Legal Competition: Economists

Dr Cragg is an expert in financial markets, antitrust and valuation. He has testified internationally and specialised in leading teams in complex litigation. He is chairman of the Brattle Group.

He has assisted corporations and governments in developing economic and financial testimony in a variety of competition, finance and tax disputes. For example, Dr Cragg recently played a central role in a variety of financial crisis litigation including the landmark AIG takings case where his client Starr International successfully prevailed in its claim that the US government abused its powers by taking 80 per cent of AIG’s stock. He also led the team that included Nobel Prize winners Dan McFadden, Joe Stiglitz and accounting professor Jerry Zimmerman in US Airways landmark jury victory in its antitrust case against Sabre. He was also a lead witness in the Eaton and Boston Scientific transfer-pricing disputes.

Dr Cragg began his career as a professor of economics at Columbia University and UCLA’s Andersen School of Management. He was also a consultant at RAND, and a senior economist in the Capital Markets section of the Milken Institute. His research has been sponsored by a range of institutions and foundations including the NSF and NIH. He was a partner at Bates White and founder of Cambridge Finance Partners. Dr Cragg currently serves as a co-editor of The Economists’ Voice.

WWL says: Michael Cragg is recommended for his considerable experience consulting and providing expert witness testimony in complex competition matters, particularly on behalf of regulatory authorities.
