Firm at a Glance

MiCRA – Microeconomic Consulting & Research Associates, Inc. – is an economic consulting firm based in Washington, DC. The firm was founded in 1991 by a group of economists who formerly served in staff and management positions – including Deputy Assistant General for Economics – at the Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice. Over time, the firm has grown in size and now includes economists with experience at other regulatory agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission.

Our goal is to provide high-quality economic analysis, expert testimony, litigation support, and economic research to law firms, corporations, government agencies, and trade associations in a wide range of industries and legal contexts. In recent years, MiCRA’s economists have been retained by clients to: prepare economic and econometric studies of various issues; make presentations before state, federal, and European competition authorities; and provide expert testimony and litigation support in arbitrations and litigation in federal and state courts. These assignments have included high-profile litigation such as U.S. v. Microsoft, FTC v. Staples, LePage’s v. 3M, In Re: Vitamins Antitrust Litigation, and Concord Boat v. Brunswick.
