Economics and Data Analysis
CapTrade has the proven capacity to build, manipulate, and analyze large databases that are part of complex commercial litigation matters. Our economists and computer experts have experience in a number of industries, including ferrous metals, chemicals, transportation, consumer electronics, agriculture, paper, and others.
Our experts have testified in federal court and submitted expert reports and declarations on commercial success for matters before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Some examples of our projects include:
- For a class action suit involving a trucking company and truck owner-operators, CapTrade processed tens of millions of electronic payroll records to estimate company over-charges;
- For a U.S. industry, CapTrade analyzed trade flows and commercial documents to determine whether or not products were being illegally transshipped;
- For a major U.S. steel producer, CapTrade prepared an economic analysis of a proposed steel mill that was being built with state support. The economic analysis included an assessment of the regional, national and world markets; the potential returns on the state investment, the impact on other steel producers in the region;
- Capital Trade has also provided consultation services regarding instrumentality factors in FCPA matters.
