Fenwick & West Announce New Antitrust Office in DC

 |  September 2, 2021

Fenwick announced they are opening a new Washington office, their sixth in the US, and that location will focus on the antitrust and trade needs of their clients. At the office’s launch, partners Thomas Ensign (formerly of Freshfields) and Melissa Duffy (formerly of Dechert) will be joining Steve Albertson, who joined Fenwick from Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom earlier this month. 

Ensign works with technology and life sciences clients and works on pre-merger notification requirements in US and international jurisdictions. Duffy’s practice focuses on international trade matters, including those related to trade controls and national security requirements for cross-border transactions. Albertson counsels technology and life sciences clients in mergers and acquisitions and other antitrust compliance and merger enforcement issues.

As reported by Bloomberg, antitrust and trade regulation are areas of focus for the firm. “We currently represent many of the most significant tech and life sciences companies that there are in the world,” Fenwick chair Richard Dickson said. “Their needs are definitely broad” in antitrust and trade.
