Dr. Mosteller’s antitrust experience includes analyzing allegations of cross-subsidization by regulated firms, sham litigation, collusion, and Robinson-Patman Act violations, as well as assessing the competitive effects and efficiencies of proposed acquisitions and joint ventures in a variety of industries. She focuses particularly on quantifying effects, such as computing the expected gain/loss in profits from price rises. She has also assessed the impact of legislation, investigated Enron’s fidelity insurance claim, evaluated the pricing of unbundled network elements and of common cost markups in state telecommunication proceedings, evaluated overcharges for telephone subscriber listings, modeled and computed data compensation payments under FIFRA, and testified before the Postal Rate Commission about access costs and cross-subsidization. Dr. Mosteller has analyzed economic damages in cases involving false advertising, the Exxon Valdez oil spill, securities fraud, contract breach (including qui tam action), and the theft of confidential information, and has written about when damages should be discounted. She has published an article about “Comparability in the U.S. Steel Transfer Pricing Case” in Tax Notes and worked on transfer pricing matters. Industries that she has analyzed include: chemicals, oil, natural gas, fisheries, converted paper products, major home appliances, electrical distribution equipment, hardware, defense, automobiles, pharmaceuticals, vitamins, telecommunications, rental car companies, title insurance, tobacco, and postal delivery.
