Ken Romig has been engaged in economic consulting for more than 20 years. He has consulted on antitrust, intellectual property, breach of contract, and other general litigation issues, including pre-merger analysis, relevant market studies, and questions of commercial success. In the course of his work, Mr. Romig has conducted analyses pertaining to lost profits, reasonable royalties, price erosion, and other economic damages within a variety of industries. He also has analyzed the impact of patent exhaustion on economic damages tied to downstream products. The industries in which he has been most frequently engaged are those relating to semiconductors, software, telecommunications, personal computing, rail transportation, and tobacco.

Mr. Romig also has consulted in areas outside of litigation. He has studied the competitive effects of mergers on behalf of merging parties and government regulatory agencies. He also has engaged in analyses of diligent enforcement of state statutes.  Mr. Romig is expert in the collection, construction, and management of very large and complex databases. He has broad knowledge of database design, analysis, and mining, and his practice has helped enhance his clients’ understanding of their own data. He has, for instance, undertaken product pricing system analyses and product distribution studies. In other engagements, where it has been appropriate to do so, Mr. Romig has made extensive use of demonstrative mapping techniques that provide geographic analysis that complements and augments traditional numerical analyses.
