With fewer offers emerging from US law firms and associate cuts still underway, is antitrust still a hot area area of practice? On the one hand, merger activity is down. On the other hand, there is a low threshold to trigger interest from DOJ and FTC as the new leadership teams figure out what to do (though no big cases yet on mergers or conduct have emerged). Is antitrust doing relatively well relative to other fields? Is follow on private class action cartel work keeping people busy or has Tombly had a big effect? Feel free to post thoughts, even anonymously.
