Howard Shelanski (Georgetown Law), until recently the Deputy Director of the FTC's Bureau of Economics, has joined NY Law firm Davis Polk in an Of Counsel role. For those of you who do not know Howard, he is incredibly smart, well respected and a brilliant communicator of complex ideas to all sorts of audiences. I have seen him present to academic and practitioner audiences around the world. I think he will not only do well in front of agencies but also incredibly well in front of clients. Howard adds tremendous value to Davis Polk and finally gives the firm a Washington antitrust insider and a really good one at that.
