Phil has been a Director at Frontier Economics since 1999, and provides regulatory, competition, valuation and strategy advice to companies, industry associations, regulators and government departments across a number of sectors.
His work on monopoly regulation, both for clients and in published papers, extends across price cap and sliding scale regulation, yardstick competition, finance issues, comparative efficiency measurement and incentive design. He has worked on many price control reviews across Europe, and in all the major energy price control reviews in the UK since privatisation.
He has also analysed the competitive dynamics of contestable utility markets in the energy and postal sectors to advise on merger, state aid, and abuse cases, as well as options for market opening and market design, and assessment of measures to promote greater customer engagement in retail markets. Phil brings this experience to bear to assist clients contemplating acquisitions and other strategic initiatives.
