We are seeking detail-oriented and driven Masters students for internships to support our European Competition Practice based in Paris.

NERA Economic Consulting is a global firm of experts dedicated to applying economic, finance, and quantitative principles to complex business and legal challenges. For over half a century, NERA’s economists have been creating strategies, studies, reports, expert testimony and policy recommendations for regulatory authorities, governments and the world’s leading law firms and corporations. NERA serves clients from over 25 offices across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.

Our competition economics work consists of economic analysis in the context of the investigation by competition authorities of alleged competition law infringements such as cartels and abuse of dominance, possible damages claims arising from the infringement and the regulatory review of mergers and acquisitions. As a member of NERA’s European Competition Practice, you will support us on French, other national, EU and, together with our colleagues around the world, international cases. For example, conducting empirical analysis to determine whether the economic evidence is consistent with an infringement allegation, quantifying the damages caused by a cartel, and advising clients throughout a merger review process.
