Professor Mandelberg is an attorney in the Legal Policy Section of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where he provides support to senior Division officials. He joined DOJ through the Attorney General’s Honors Program in 2011. His work at DOJ has focused on the Division’s enforcement and competition advocacy efforts regarding health care, conditional pricing practices, telecommunications, and the appropriate remedies for FRAND-encumbered, standards-essential patents. Professor Mandelberg was on the pre and post trial briefs in United States v. Aetna and Humana and led a business review investigation of a novel IP licensing exchange developed by IPXI. He co-organized DOJ-FTC public workshops on health care and on conditional pricing practices, during which he also moderated panels. Professor Mandelberg has been on DOJ filings submitted to the FCC, such as one on spectrum auctions, and was the primary staff attorney on three competition advocacy letters from DOJ on pending state legislation, including one on telemedicine. Over the years, he has reviewed matters related to the U.S. International Trade Commission. Before joining DOJ, Professor Mandelberg interned for the White House Counsel’s Office and the Counsel’s Office to the Los Angeles Mayor and worked as a research assistant at the RAND Corporation. He joined the Georgetown Law adjunct faculty in 2017.
