Dr. Nicola Tosini is a Director in NERA’s Antitrust and Competition Practice, primarily based in Berlin. With almost 15 years of experience, Dr. Tosini is an expert in the economic analysis of competition cases and supports firms and their legal advisers in merger reviews, cartel and antitrust investigations, the litigation of damages, international arbitration, and public policy issues.

Dr. Tosini has submitted economic evidence, including during in-depth merger investigations, to the European Commission and national competition authorities. He has also acted as expert witness in antitrust damages proceedings, including collective proceedings, before national courts. His experience spans a variety of industries, including automotive parts, building materials, chemicals, consumer packaged goods, digital music services, electronics, fluid power systems, freight transport and forwarding, medical equipment, passenger air travel, pharmaceuticals, retail, and telecommunications.

Dr. Tosini regularly speaks at conferences and writes in journals on matters related to the economics of competition. At the Florence Competition Programme of the European University Institute he has participated in multiple panels discussing ex-post and ex-ante regulation of digital markets. He recently published an article in the Journal of European Competition Law & Practice illustrating, based on his case experience, complex issues that arise in the evaluation of mergers between differentially backward-integrated firms. One of his earlier articles on the significance of innovation in merger assessment, published in Antitrust Magazine, was awarded Concurrences’ 2019 Antitrust Writing Award in the Business Articles—Cross-Border Issues category.

Dr. Tosini holds an MA and a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a research assistant in the Department of Economics and the Wharton School, as well as at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
