Dr Thomas Hildebrand joined E.CA Economics in October 2011. He has extensive experience in supporting clients in various fields of competition economics, particularly in cartel cases (e.g. the air cargo cartel case and the synthetic rubber cartel case), merger proceedings (e.g. HeidelbergCement/Italcementi and Immonet/Immowelt) and abuse of dominance cases. Thomas’s industry knowledge spans a variety of fields such as grocery retailing, fast-moving consumer goods, chemicals, cement, automotive parts, freight forwarding, print/television/online advertising, and digital markets. He is experienced in arguing cases before the European Commission, the German Bundeskartellamt and the Swiss WEKO as well as in private litigation cases. Thanks to his empirical background, Thomas has particular expertise in applying statistical and econometric methods to cartel cases and merger proceedings.

Prior to joining E.CA Economics, Thomas worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the Collaborative Research Centre 15 “Governance and the Efficiency of Economic Systems” at the Humboldt-University of Berlin and as a guest researcher at the Deutsche Bundesbank.
Thomas holds a doctoral degree in economics from the Humboldt-University of Berlin as well as a double diploma degree in economics from Humboldt-University of Berlin and École Nationale de la Statistique et de l’Administration Économique (ENSAE) Paris. In his research, Thomas specialises in two-sided markets and financial economics. His work has been published in leading international peer-reviewed journals such as Management Science, Economics Letters and Research Policy.
