DOJ Veteran Joins Axinn’s Antitrust Group

 |  March 30, 2020

Axinn announced that former US Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division trial attorney Craig Minerva is joining the firm’s Antitrust Group as Counsel in its Washington, DC, office. 

At the DOJ, Minerva led investigations into some of the most consequential mergers of the last several years. Minerva led the investigation of the merger between Disney and Fox, resulting in the divestiture of all of Fox’s regional sports networks, as well as Quad Graphics’ proposed acquisition of LSC Communications, which the rival commercial printers abandoned during litigation. In 2019, Minerva was honored both with the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award as well as the Assistant Attorney General Award. Prior to the DOJ, Minerva worked in private practice for many years where he gained significant experience representing clients in a range of antitrust matters, often with an international dimension.

Antitrust Group Co-Chair Michael Keeley said, “Craig’s experience leading major merger investigations at the Antitrust Division will be immensely beneficial for our clients. He is another strong addition to our growing team of exceptional antitrust attorneys.”

Minerva explained, “Axinn offered the perfect opportunity to continue practicing antitrust at the highest level. My time at DOJ provided me with the utmost respect for the Division’s mission and its talented professionals. I look forward to applying what I learned from my government experience at Axinn.”
