Dr. Robert Kulick is an Associate Director in NERA’s Communications, Media, and Internet Practice. Dr. Kulick employs cutting-edge econometric techniques and a strong background in applied economic theory to resolve complex problems faced by clients, while paying close attention to the legal context and the operations of real-world markets. He is primarily focused on assessing the consumer welfare implications of economic policy in innovative industries.

Dr. Kulick’s expertise spans a wide variety of practice areas, including antitrust and competition policy, regulatory economics, econometrics, telecommunications policy, economic support of EB-5 immigrant investment petitions, and auctions. He has extensive experience representing clients in antitrust litigation and has authored numerous white papers focusing on competition policy issues such as merger policy, net neutrality, the conflict between overlapping state and federal regulatory jurisdiction, and class certification. He has also frequently been engaged as an auction consultant and served as the lead auction expert for a large bidder in Colombia’s 4G spectrum auction. In addition, Dr. Kulick has worked for many years as a consultant on behalf of immigrant investors making use of the EB-5 program, and he has an extensive track record of economic impact reports that have been accepted by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services in support of I-526 approval.

Dr. Kulick has published his research in peer-reviewed journals and law reviews. His work on net neutrality has been cited favorably by the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, and he has contributed to comments to the Federal Communications Commission on that issue. His research on mergers has received numerous awards, and he has been invited to both the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to discuss the relationship between efficiencies and price effects in consummated mergers.
