Biography

Dr. Chipty is an expert in antitrust economics and econometrics, and global co-head of economics consulting at AlixPartners. For over 20 years, she has worked with both private parties and government agencies in antitrust litigation, competition merger review, and regulatory proceedings, across a broad array of sectors such as telecommunications, high-tech, media and entertainment, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals. Her work has been influential both internationally and domestically.

With respect to recent litigation matters, Dr. Chipty was one of Qualcomm’s experts in the series of antitrust challenges to its chip licensing practices and the terms of its agreements with Apple. She was the antitrust expert for the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in the successful challenge of Atrium Health’s use of anti-steering restrictions in contracts with health plans. She was an expert for the government of Australia, at the World Trade Organization, in a series of disputes surrounding Australia’s national tobacco control policy—a case in which both the panel and the appellate body found for Australia. Dr. Chipty was Comcast’s antitrust damages expert in Behrend et al v Comcast, a case in which the US Supreme Court decertified the class because of deficiencies in the plaintiffs’ damages model.

Dr. Chipty has substantial expertise in mergers. She assisted the parties in Liberty’s acquisition of AT&T’s fiber assets in Puerto Rico, the CenturyLink/Level 3 merger, and the Charter/Time Warner merger, all of which were cleared by both the DOJ and the Federal Communications Commission. She served as the expert for the DOJ in the litigation to block the John Deere/Precision Planting merger, a transaction focused on an innovation race in technology that enabled advances in agriculture.

Last year, Dr. Chipty served as the expert for the Canadian Competition Bureau in a regulatory proceeding in Canada for which she assessed the state of competition in the retail wireless marketplace.

Dr. Chipty is the co-editor of the current edition of the American Bar Association’s book Proving Antitrust Damages. She has published academic research on the strategic use of vertical integration; the role of firm size and network effects on bilateral business negotiations; and the effects of regulations on firm behaviour.

Prior to joining AlixPartners, Dr. Chipty was the founder and managing principal of Matrix Economics; before that she was a managing principal at Analysis Group and a vice president at Charles River Associates. She has served on the faculties of the Ohio State University, Brandeis University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where she taught courses in antitrust and regulation, industrial organisation and econometrics. Dr. Chipty received her Ph.D. in economics from MIT and her undergraduate degree in economics and mathematics from Wellesley College.
