WWL says

Rainer Lademann is "vastly experienced" and "a go-to economist in abuse of dominance proceedings" and other competition-related issues. 

Biography

Professor Dr Rainer P Lademann, born in Bremen 1953, studied business economics at the University of Göttingen after being apprenticed to the Siemens AG. At the University of Göttingen he also obtained a PhD for his dissertation on buyer power in the grocery retailing sector.

In 1986, he founded the first consulting company specialised in competition economics in accordance with German antitrust law; since 1998, this has extended even further, to EU cartel law. Professor Lademann has advised merger cases, cartel and damage claim cases, selective distribution systems and abuse of dominance cases. He gave strategic advice in pre or post-merger projects, as well as in distribution matters (such as in the automotive industry) and the realignment of dealer networks or company pricing strategies. Mr Lademann has advised the EU Commission (DG Comp/BER 1400/2002), the economic committee (in connection with the sixth amendment of the German cartel law), the nutrition committee of the German parliament and – on more than one occasion – the German Monopoly Commission. He has also served as an expert in litigations.

Professor Lademann is also experienced in such sectors as automotives, energy, cement, lifts and escalators, railroad tracks, truck market, foodstuffs such as coffee, flour, sweets and sugar, wholesaling and retailing with fast-moving consumer goods, paper, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), mail order services, transportation and traffic, infrastructure branches and insurance. Within his client base are leading companies such as AMG, Audi, AXA, Coty, Daimler, Deutsche Post, Dyckerhoff, Edeka, Fiat, HeidelbergCement, Henkel, Gothaer, HUK Coburg, Iveco, Lafarge, MAN, Markant Group, Metro Group, Migros, Otis, Rosenbauer, RTL II, Spar Austria, ThyssenKrupp, Tip (General Electric), Volkswagen, VNG-Ontras and Zentis.

As an honorary professor at the University of Göttingen he has published more than 80 articles and books, including seven monographs and numerous essays dealing with different topics of antitrust law, and strategic and competition issues in the retail sector.
