We study market conditions and companies’ commercial practices to evaluate the existence of anticompetitive behavior, such as abuse of dominance and collusion; analyze the potential effects that merger and acquisition processes may have on competition; or establish guidelines for companies to help avoid potentially anticompetitive practices.
Our studies have identified this conduct’s possible price effects in the market and changes to consumer welfare, in order to estimate any potential fines that may be applied as well as the economic damages caused.
We have prepared studies in Peru, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic for more than twenty cases involving price fixing, market allocation, price discrimination, exclusivity agreements, vertical restraints, unjustified refusal to deal, predatory pricing, merger control in the electricity sector, and studies to diagnose commercial practices and guidelines for compliance with antitrust laws.

“APOYO Consultoría stands out for its top-level team, high-quality work, and its ability to meet even the tightest deadlines. Thanks to the team’s excellent technical skills, the learning curve is quick, which helps to streamline the work, especially when it involves complex topics. I think it’s very important for a consultant to not just follow a client’s instructions, but to propose other ways of tackling the same problem or evaluating the situation. The added value provided by APOYO Consultoría is that they help us look for solutions and present us with alternatives that we have oftentimes failed to identify ourselves. They have helped us with critical issues for the organization and complex negotiating processes with the government. While we have not gotten the results we were hoping for in every single case, we have always ended up in a better position than when we started. Whether great or small, there is always a positive impact.”

“We hired APOYO Consultoría because we know they do diligent, high-quality work, whether with research or any other tasks with which they are entrusted. Their reputation is a guarantee of credibility wherever you go. Not only are they a trustworthy company, but everyone knows it. The experience and skill of each of the company’s members allows them to gain a full understanding of what the client needs and go above and beyond, using creativity and pragmatism to maximize the value of their consulting services. Overall, the most important benefit APOYO Consultoría provides is the ability to make ‘tangible’ or demonstrable things that can sometimes seem relative or vague, and that makes a difference in any field.”

“The reputation and diligent work of APOYO Consultoría gives us peace of mind when it comes to the quality of the deliverables and the knowledge that external agents will trust the objectivity of the results. In addition to working to understand the context in which we operate and co-designing projects with us to make them more robust, APOYO Consultoría has given us the tools we need to objectively demonstrate—in different forums and to different audiences—key aspects about our operation which people sometimes talk about without truly understanding them.”
