We are a worldwide leader in competition economics, with 16 offices and 230 economists worldwide.

Who we are

For our staff, this means that as well as developing important client-facing consulting skills, RBB provides you with the opportunity to enhance and apply your economic knowledge to real world problems. Economists at RBB are recognised as being among the very best in the world.

We maintain that position by developing the skills of our staff and RBB is recognised as being the leader in nurturing future talent in this field.

The work at RBB is stimulating, challenging and rewarding. We have high expectations of our employees, but we also give them the freedom to pursue their interests and passions. You’ll find that the more you put in, the more you develop and progress RBB is meritocratic, not hierarchical: all staff have contact with the Partners on a daily basis.

Diversity & Inclusion

Innovation through diversity

At RBB, our diversity is a core component of our success as global leaders in competition economics. By bringing together a team with a range of backgrounds and experiences, we can approach each challenge with fresh perspectives and novel solutions that reflect the complexities of the real world.

Our history

RBB was established in 2002 by Derek Ridyard, Simon Bishop, and Simon Baker, with the goal of creating a brand that outlasts individuals.

In 2007, RBB transitioned to a partnership, emphasising collegiality and sustainable growth by incentivising experienced partners to support colleagues and the firm’s overall development. Derek, Simon, and Simon significantly influenced the field by championing the use of economics in competition cases, solidifying its central role in the industry.

Starting with just 16 people, including the dearly missed Andrea Lofaro, the firm now boasts over 200 Partners and staff. Despite its growth, RBB retains its startup mentality—making swift decisions, fostering seamless communication across offices, and nurturing a passionate, diverse and collaborative work environment.
