She is known for providing pragmatic advice relating to the antitrust aspects of multi-million and multi-billion dollar mergers & acquisitions, including antitrust risk assessment, transaction negotiations, multi-jurisdictional merger control, and advocacy before the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and US Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division (DOJ).
