Vertical merger in the aerospace industry

Lear was retained by a leading operator in the aerospace industry to provide assistance in a merger case involving one of its rivals. Lear developed analyses aimed at showing how the merger may create the incentives for the merged entity to implement exclusionary practices that would harm competition and the client. Analyses undertaken included the evaluation of the incentive to foreclose as well as that of the impact that a foreclosure would have on competition.
