Joseph Wayland, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice
Joseph Wayland, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, will speak on recent Division activities, including merger challenges and litigation. Mr. Wayland came to the Justice Department in September 2010 as the Division’s First Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Civil Enforcement. In addition to managing key merger reviews, he was responsible for all of the Division’s civil litigation and non-merger investigations. Mr. Wayland also served as the Division’s chief trial counsel.
Last year, Wayland helped the Division secure a victory in its challenge to AT&T’s proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA after four months of litigation. Mr. Wayland also led the Division’s first successful trial challenge in almost ten years, blocking H&R Block from acquiring TaxAct after a two-week trial.
Before joining the Justice Department, Mr. Wayland was a partner at Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett LLP, where his practice focused on complex business litigation, including antitrust and securities matters. He has served as lead trial counsel in numerous federal and state trials involving antitrust, fraud, contract, and regulatory matters. He was elected a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2009.
