Secondment to provide economics input to EWS competition law case (2005-2006)

Nic undertook a 3.5-month secondment at the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR), where he supported the investigation of allegations of abuse of a dominant position by EWS in the supply of coal haulage by rail. He provided advice on each of the main allegations of abuse: exclusionary contracts, discriminatory pricing and predation. The case led to the first infringement decision under UK and EC competition law by a sector regulator.
