ARLINGTON, October 16 — Nathan is pleased to announce that Russell W. Mangum III, Senior Vice President in our Litigation & Expert Services practice, has been honored by the American Antitrust Institute (AAI) with a 2019 Antitrust Enforcement Award in the category of “Outstanding Antitrust Litigation Achievement in Economics.”

Awards in this category are given to leading legal economists who have contributed to the development of methodology, analysis, or policy related to antitrust legislation. AAI has honored Dr. Mangum with this award for his work on the matter In re Transpacific Passenger Air Transportation Antitrust Litigation, a case involving allegations of price fixing on fuel surcharges and fares.

Dr. Mangum, serving as the designated and testifying expert economist in the case, authored several reports and gave expert testimony. His analysis used an innovative approach to a complex market in order to support class certification and calculate damages, and his work and opinions supported both the certification of two proposed classes and the class counsel’s efforts that resulted in settlement.

Honorees of the 2019 Antitrust Enforcement Awards will be recognized at a dinner following the AAI’s Annual Private Antitrust Enforcement Conference, on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

“It is always gratifying to be recognized for effective, quality work, even more so when that recognition comes from one’s peers in the industry. Equally gratifying is the experience I have working with outstanding colleagues and support staff at Nathan Associates, and playing a part in the very important task of protecting competition in the U.S. economy,” said Dr. Mangum.

Dr. Mangum has over 23 years of experience in economic research and analysis and has served as a consulting and testifying expert in the private sector and for local, state, and federal governments. His practice focuses on economic analysis and expert testimony in a wide range of matters involving intellectual property, antitrust, class certification, and damage quantification.

Nathan is proud to include Dr. Mangum in its bench of antitrust experts. Read more about our work on Antitrust & Competition litigation matters.
