Dr. Tilman Makatsch is Head of Competition Litigation & Antitrust Economics at Deutsche Bahn AG.

Deutsche Bahn has become a pioneer and European leader in the private enforcement of antitrust claims. He and his team has successfully recovered more than 500 Million EUR in claims for damages suffered through violations of antitrust law in more than 40 settlements. Prominent cases include the rail track, trucks, air freight, escalator/elevator, carbon brushes and coffee cartels as well as MasterCard and VISA on interchange fees. The success of the department is, in part, based on the inter-disciplinary/international make-up of a team consisting of antitrust lawyers, litigators and competition economists.

Before Tilman Makatsch moved to Deutsche Bahn in 2008, he worked as a senior manager in the regulatory management of Deutsche Telekom for four years. Previously, he worked as an attorney in Frankfurt. Tilman Makatsch studied in Frankfurt and Leicester (UK) and completed his legal clerkship, inter alia, in Brussels and Cape Town.
