Vikram Kumar has been named a Principal in the London office of global economic advisory firm Cornerstone Research. The move comes as part of six global promotions.

Cornerstone Research provides economic and financial consulting and expert testimony in all phases of complex litigation and regulatory proceedings. The firm works with an international network of faculty and industry practitioners, and has earned a reputation for delivering rigorous, state-of-the-art analysis for more than three decades. The firm has over 700 staff and offices in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Washington D.C., and London. As the company looks to boost its offering to clients in the UK’s financial hub, it has appointed a new Principal to its London office. 

Vikram Kumar consults on competition and antitrust matters, including merger reviews, vertical and horizontal exclusionary practices, private damages litigation, and market investigations. Holding a PhD in Economics from Penn State University, Kumar joined Cornerstone in 2017, and has since worked to develop theoretical and numerical models, assessed large and complex datasets, and designed and implemented large-scale market surveys. His experience covers a range of industries.

Kumar’s promotion comes as part of six global appointments announced by Cornerstone in February. Across Cornerstone’s Los Angeles, New York, Silicon Valley, and Washington D.C. locales, the firm also announced the elevation of Filipe Lacerda, Daniel Ramsey, and Manuel Vasconcelos to the rank of Principal in the US, while Ashish Pradhan and Allie Schwartz ascended to Vice Presidents at the firm. 

Commenting on the news, Cornerstone Research President Yesim Richardson said, “I am delighted to congratulate these outstanding colleagues on their well-deserved promotions. They are all terrific examples of our best-in-class talent, providing top-quality support to our clients and experts, and leading by example to foster our firm’s exceptional culture.”
