Bill Baer Nominated to Head DOJ Antitrust

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Reuters has reported that Bill Baer has been nominated to head DOJ Antitrust.Bill Baer is an exceptonal antitrust lawyer. In teaching Staples/Office Depot two weeks ago (with the help of guest lecturer Jim Fishkin of Dechert who helped try the case for the FTC) I was struck by how a case that looks so obviously correct now was not viewed that way at the time of trial. As head of BC, Bill helped make that case happen.
