Who's Who Legal Consulting Experts: Economic Consulting - Competition Economists

Antoine Chapsal is a co-founding partner at MAPP. Antoine is an economist specialised in theoretical and empirical industrial organisation. He has 13 years’ experience as a competition economics consultant. He has provided economic expertise in a large number of high-profile cases involving mergers, abuses of dominant positions, cartels, information exchanges, regulation and damage quantification. Recent examples include the Lafarge/Holcim and Fnac/Darty mergers, as well as airfreight, cathodic tubes and elevators cartel cases. He also assisted various firms in designing optimized pricing strategies and contracts that comply with competition rules.

His reports have been presented to the competition authorities of France, Germany, Austria and South Africa, as well as to the European Commission, the Court of Appeals of Paris, the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf, the French State Council and the Tribunal of Commerce of Paris.

Previously, he worked at the French Ministry of Economy, where he took part in drafting the horizontal merger guidelines, and at an American competition economics consultancy. He has contributed to various OECD reports on competition and industrial policy and regularly publishes articles on competition economics, on subjects ranging from the econometric analysis of cartels to geographic market delineation and exclusionary strategies.

He has taught statistics, econometrics and competition economics at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris-Saclay and at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po), from which he graduated. He received a PhD in economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, and an MA in competition law from King’s College London. He is an affiliated professor at the Sciences Po department of economics and a member of the CESifo academic research network.

WWL says: Antoine Chapsal is considered “a go-to economist” and “top choice” by respondents thanks to his strategic awareness.
