About David Jevons
David works in Oxera's analytics and digital practice areas, using advanced quantitative techniques such as econometrics and simulation tools to provide advice on commercial strategy, litigation and regulatory issues. He provides advice on business planning for investments, mergers, acquisitions and public policy choices.
David provides advice on regulatory and litigation cases using insights on consumer behaviour, data and algorithms, and the effect of regulatory interventions.

We advise companies, policymakers, regulators and lawyers on any economic issue connected with competition, finance or regulation. We have been doing this for more than three decades, gathering deep and wide-ranging knowledge as we expand into new sectors. We have a reputation for credibility and integrity among those we advise, and among key decision-makers, such as policymakers, regulators and courts. Today we have offices in Berlin, Brussels, London, Oxford, and Rome, and are able to advise our international clients in a highly flexible way, including providing advice in several other languages.
Every question that we are asked is different, which is why one-size-fits-all analysis, however rigorous, is not enough. The insight we provide to our clients comes from never tiring of thinking harder each time; a continual readiness to use innovative approaches; and a realisation that you have to look beyond the narrow confines of any given subject to understand the bigger picture of which it is always a part. If you have a business-critical question about anything to do with competition, financial, regulatory or quantitative economics, we can provide a compelling answer.
The increasing use of automated pricing systems has been creating enforcement challenges due to the ability of algorithms to complicate discovery of unlawful deals and ease collusions. These regulatory uncertainties surrounding the new technologies pose various concerns to businesses, considering or using pricing algorithms, since it could subject them to government investigations or litigation.
However, although there's already a crackdown on automated pricing systems' anticompetitive use, companies should not sidestep the significant opportunities offered by new technologies just because they fear antitrust liability.
In this live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help businesses and their counsel understand the important Antitrust aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of recent trends and developments concerning Pricing Algorithms and Collusions. Speakers will also offer best practices in optimizing these new technologies while complying with antitrust laws.
Key topics include:
• Pricing Algorithms and Collusions: Recent Trends and Developments
• Enforcement Challenges
• Notable Cases in 2018
• Optimizing Pricing Algorithms
• Managing Risks and Pitfalls
• Best Compliance Practices
• What Lies Ahead in 2019
