Who's Who Legal Competition: Economists

Sam Williams is a director and co-founder of Economic Insight, with almost two decades of experience of advising on competition law and regulatory matters. He was, notably, the expert economics witness in relation to the case of Socrates Training Limited v The Law Society, the first competition litigation case to be heard under the CAT’s fast track process. During his career, he has advised clients on market investigations; abuses of dominance (predation, margin squeeze, refusal to supply) and cartel cases, including the estimation of damages. He has also led high-profile merger control work. Sam has particular expertise in advising on competition matters in regulated industries, such as water, telecoms and energy. He also sits on the advisory pool of experts at the Bar Standards Board; and is on the CMA’s panel of external experts in relation to price control appeals.

WWL says: Sam Williams is “everything you want in a competition economist” effuse sources who add he “never fails to deliver either intellectually or in terms of product”.
