She is one of many Bold, Brilliant, and Accomplished women lawyers at MoFo:
What do you like best about your work?
Developing creative strategies to achieve what the client wants, the in-depth learning about a wide variety of businesses, and working with smart people around the globe (as antitrust increasingly becomes more global).
Why did you become a lawyer?
As a seventh grader, not knowing a single lawyer or what they really did, I thought that it was a great path to the presidency or to becoming a Supreme Court justice.
How do you see your practice changing in the next few years?
Antitrust continues to become a more complicated and more global practice. As chair of the ABA Antitrust Section until last August, I had the privilege to help shape antitrust policy around the globe and deepen friendships with enforcers and members of the antitrust bar both in the United States and other jurisdictions. Clients will face an even more nuanced landscape in the future world of antitrust and will benefit from greater understanding of process and relationships. Maintaining contacts has thus become more important. For example, this March I arranged interviews of 15 foreign enforcement officials at an antitrust meeting attended by 3,000 people and I will co-chair the prestigious International Cartel Workshop to be held in Paris in February 2018.
