Bachman focuses his practice on various aspects of antitrust law, representing clients in merger clearance proceedings before the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division and Federal Trade Commission as well as in complex antitrust disputes in federal and state courts. He also counsels clients on the impact of antitrust laws on their business activities, including standard setting, trade association participation, compliance programs and audits, sales and marketing practices, and licensing, royalty, and settlement agreements.
“We are thrilled to welcome Allen to the Washington, D.C., office,” said Bruce J.
