Three economists from EI nominated for 2015 Antitrust Writing Awards.

Economists Incorporated is pleased to announce that three of its economists have been nominated for 2015 Antitrust Writing Awards under the auspices of Concurrences Journal and George Washington University Law School Competition Law Center for two separate articles.

EI Principal and Board Chairman Barry Harris and EI Corporate Vice President and Principal Matt Wright (with Kevin Murphy and Bobby Willig) were nominated for Activating Actavis:  A More Complete Story, which appeared in Antitrust magazine (Spring 2014).  Their article considers the Supreme Court’s decision in FTC v. Actavis and identifies situations where so-called reverse payments may be required to achieve pro-competitive results.

EI Vice President Su Sun (with Fei Deng) was nominated for Rainbow v. Johnson & Johnson: RPM Litigation in China, which appeared in the ABA’s Distribution Newsletter (March 2014).  This article considers the Shanghai High People’s Court’s resale price maintenance decision in Rainbow v. Johnson & Johnson Medical China Ltd and discusses, among other things, its embrace of economic analysis.
