Matthew Raiff is a Ph.D. economist with over 23 years of experience in economic consulting in litigation and regulatory proceedings. Matthew's practice is diverse with a special focus on matters related to Section 1 of the Sherman Antitrust Act. This experience includes over a dozen of the largest cartel matters in the U.S. in the past 25 years such as Vitamins, Rubber Chemicals, EPDM, PCP, Linerboard, Parcel Tanker Shipping, DRAM and LCD's. Matthew's clients include law firms, Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.

He has led teams that in aggregate have recovered over $5 billion in damages for plaintiffs and settled over $500 million in damages for defendants. Traditionally, he is hired to be the economic strategic advisor for his clients very early in the development of a matter. This enables Dr. Raiff to help his clients navigate the liability determinations, damage estimates, and litigation strategy development, faced early during the litigation life cycle. He then works closely with clients through the remaining litigation phases including discovery, data analytics, economic and econometric analysis, economic damage assessments, expert testimony, and settlement negotiations.

Prior to joining GlassRatner, Matthew was a founding partner of Bates White, LLC. He led the development of Bates White's antitrust practice and was the firm's Managing Partner from 2003 to 2009. Some of his legacy programs include their highly regarded annual antitrust conference, their undergraduate and Ph.D. recruiting programs, and their Summer Consultant Program ranked #1 nationally in 2017 by Vault.

Matthew has published numerous industry articles on topics such as, a) the pricing mechanisms in 17th Century Art Trade between Antwerp and Paris, b) the supply-chain synergies milk producers consider and realize when competing for school milk contracts, c) the vitamins cartel reliance on public price announcements to execute and enforce the primary goals of the cartel and d) the design of anti-collusive measures that procurement agencies can take to enhance their ability to defend against collusive pricing.

While at Duke University, Matthew taught over a dozen classes and was consistently recognized for superior student evaluations. He received the highest recognition within the Duke University Department of Economics for his undergraduate teaching in 1996 and a similar honor while teaching at Penn State University in 1998.

Dr. Raiff graduated from Canisius College's Honors Program with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and recipient of the BICS Award for the highest achievement within the Economics and Finance Department. He received both his Master's degree and Ph.D. from Duke University in Economics. He did his Post-Doctorate at Penn State University specializing in the study of collusion.
