Senior Associate: Competition Practice (London)
CRA’s European Competition Practice specialises in providing economic advice on matters of competition policy and regulation.
We assist firms and their legal advisors in all types of competition proceedings: firms considering merger and acquisition opportunities or involved in merger control proceedings; and firms undergoing investigations relating to cartels, restrictive commercial agreements, abuse of dominance or state aid. We also provide advice to firms involved in regulatory proceedings and sector inquiries. We offer assistance on the estimation of effects and damages in cartel cases, international arbitration and intellectual property disputes.
We have a reputation for rigorous and innovative economic analysis, careful attention to detail, and the ability to work effectively as part of a wider team of advisors. From Airtours to GE/Honeywell, Tetra/Sidel, Oracle/PeopleSoft, Ryanair/Aer Lingus, TomTom/Tele Atlas, Microsoft and Intel, we have played a key role in many of the cases that have shaped European competition policy in recent years. We have also been involved in major cases before the competition authorities of the Member States, and in South Africa.
CRA’s London Office is currently recruiting Senior Associates for a 2016 or 2017 start.
PhDs applicants come in at the Senior Associate level. PhD applicants are expected to have a PhD from a top academic university in either economics or finance related subjects. We are particularly interested in hiring PhDs with experience working with large data sets and therefore empirical PhDs, regardless of the subject topic, are highly valued. For those with non-empirical PhDs a focus on IO is an obvious advantage although not essential.
Successful PhD candidates, will be expected to rapidly take on genuine responsibility, assisting Partners and other senior staff by providing conceptual and practical input to competition case work as required. The role brings with it the possibility of working on some of the largest and most significant competition cases in Europe, playing a key role in the shaping of the cases.
