Their arrival follows that of antitrust Partner Roxann Henry, who recently joined the firm in Washington, DC.

By adding M.J., Mark and Jackie, we are well on our way to achieving that objective."</p> <p>Ms. Moltenbrey appears before the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC), state attorneys general, and in federal courts on a wide array of issues, including mergers, civil and criminal conduct cases, and administrative proceedings. She represents clients through civil and criminal conduct investigations by the federal and state antitrust authorities, and has defended clients in federal court cases and FTC proceedings.

He also was responsible for coordinating competition advocacy efforts with other federal agencies and the White House, and he was one of the engineers of the Antitrust Division’s current policy governing the treatment of intellectual property under antitrust laws. For his work at the Justice Department, he was presented by the Attorney General with the John Marshall Award for Outstanding Legal Achievement. He joins Dewey & LeBoeuf as of counsel.</p> <p>Ms. Grise focuses on the defense of corporate clients in connection with domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, as well as antitrust counseling and other non-merger matters.

The Guide describes the conditions under which the DoJ might allow a transaction with anticompetitive aspects to proceed. Traditionally, merging companies generally have fixed anticompetitive aspects of a deal with “structural remedies,” meaning permanent changes in the makeup of the merging companies, typically divestiture, rather than requiring a company to behave in certain ways (for example, by segregating confidential information, or granting open access to some of its resources). One of the important innovations in the Guide is greater receptivity to accept these “conduct remedies.” Tue, 21 Jun 2011 11:40:00 GMT Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf Secures Italian Antritrust Authority Victory for Clients Against Bayer AG Http://deweyleboeuf.com/en/Firm/MediaCenter/PressReleases/2011/07/DeweyLeBoeufSecuresVictory (Rome, July 5, 2011) – Dewey & LeBoeuf has advised Sapec Agro, Industrias Afrasa, Proplan and Probelte in Italian Antitrust Authority proceedings against Bayer AG. The Authority ruled in favour of the firm’s clients today, ordering Bayer to pay a €5 million fine. <br /><br />The proceedings were initiated following a complaint lodged by Sapec that Bayer had abused its dominant position by refusing to grant access to certain studies on vertebrates, which were necessary for the above mentioned companies to renew authorizations for the sale of plant protection products containing fosetyl. This resulted in the companies being excluded from the relevant market. <br /><br />The Dewey & LeBoeuf team comprised practice head Rino Caiazzo with Associate Kathleen Stagi.
