Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP announced today that Jared P. Nagley, a Lead Staff Attorney at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s Northeast Regional Office, will join the firm as counsel in its litigation department in the New York office. Mr. Nagley will focus on antitrust clearance and litigation matters.

“We are pleased to welcome Jared to our firm,” said Paul, Weiss chair Brad S. Karp. “Jared’s substantial experience within the FTC in merger reviews will be of great value to our clients, especially as their deal-making activity continues to increase.”

“Jared’s technical grounding in merger analysis, combined with his broader litigation skills, will benefit our clients across both the merger and non-merger litigation spectrum,” said Andrew Finch, co-chair of the Antitrust Practice. “We look forward to having him on our team.”

“It’s a tremendous privilege to join Paul, Weiss,” said Mr. Nagley. “I am thrilled at the opportunity to practice with the firm’s outstanding antitrust team and preeminent litigation department.”

In his eight years at the FTC, Mr. Nagley led merger investigations across a broad range of industries, including healthcare, consumer goods, technology and industrial products. In recognition of his success as the lead staff attorney for the FTC’s investigation of and subsequent litigation to enjoin the proposed merger of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center and the Pinnacle Health System, Mr. Nagley earned the Commission’s prestigious Janet D. Steiger Award in 2017. Mr. Nagley also led several merger investigations that resulted in the parties abandoning their transactions and negotiated settlements requiring significant divestitures. Mr. Nagley represented the FTC in coordinated investigations with competition officials in the offices of numerous state attorneys general, the European Commission and China’s MOFCOM.
