Adam specializes in leading the economic analysis of damages and liability issues arising in commercial litigation and regulatory disputes, with a particular focus on high-stakes antitrust and competition matters. His work has included well over a hundred high-profile cases, often with claimed damages of nine figures or more, and including many of the most prominent price-fixing and alleged monopolization disputes of the past twenty-five years.
In addition to serving as an antitrust and/or damages expert, Adam also works with counsel to identify and support preeminent testifiers in academia and industry. He has consulted on litigation matters in a wide range of industries such as oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, business and consumer financial services, e-commerce infrastructure, computer software, health care, airlines, and various heavy manufacturing sectors such as construction materials, chemicals, paper products, and agricultural processing. He worked closely with counsel and economics experts for Spirit Airlines in its predatory-pricing case against Northwest Airlines, which resulted in a favorable Sixth Circuit opinion that has become the subject of multiple law review articles as well as a chapter in a prominent antitrust textbook.
Previously Adam co-founded a money management firm, taught statistics at Northwestern University, and coauthored a study on the informational content of dividend announcements that was published in the American Economic Review. He has also been a Senior Vice President at Nathan Associates, a Director and Economic Analysis practice leader for Gnarus Advisors, and a Principal at Cornerstone Research.
