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.
