Who's Who Legal Consulting Experts: Economic Consulting - Competition Economists

Aviv Nevo was formerly chief economist and deputy assistant attorney general for economic analysis at the antitrust division at the US Department of Justice, where he advised on merger investigations, as well as civil and criminal investigations. He led the division’s economic analysis group of over 30 PhD economists and statistical analysts.

Professor Nevo has been retained as an expert by the US Department of Justice, the US Federal Trade Commission and private firms in cases related to antitrust merger review, regulatory review of dominant firms, and antitrust and other litigation matters. In 2016, Professor Nevo testified as the US government’s economic expert in the proposed $37 billion merger between health insurers Aetna and Humana.

His academic work lies at the intersection of industrial organisation, marketing, and econometrics. Professor Nevo is a pioneer in using data to analyse consumer preferences and decision making. He has published extensively on methods that can be used to assess market power and mergers, particularly in the context of differentiated products. His research includes studies of consumer packaged goods, retailing, real estate brokerages, healthcare, and telecommunications.

Professor Nevo currently serves as a coeditor of Econometrica and previously served as a coeditor of the RAND Journal of Economics and editor of the Journal of Industrial Economics. He is a fellow of the Econometric Society, and is a research associate with the National Bureau of Economic Research. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, he taught at the University of California, Berkeley; Northwestern University; and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

WWL says: Aviv Nevo is a big name in the US market and possesses considerable experience testifying on behalf of the DOJ, FTC and corporate clients in significant matters.
