Axinn announced that Koren Wong-Ervin is joining the firm’s Antitrust Group as partner in Washington, DC, on March 30, bringing more than 16 years of experience in high-stakes litigations and domestic and foreign investigations involving antitrust issues. Her experience includes serving at the Federal Trade Commission, working as an expert consultant for technology companies, and senior positions in-house.

“Koren’s significant experience with domestic and international antitrust issues, and her extensive work at the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property law, will make her an asset to the firm and our clients,” said John Harkrider, Co-Chair of the Antitrust Group and a founding partner of the firm. “We continue to strengthen our antitrust capabilities with new team members like Koren, maintaining our commitment to expanding our antitrust practice with some of the most talented antitrust minds in the legal world.”

Wong-Ervin joins from Qualcomm Incorporated, where she worked in-house as the Director of Antitrust Policy and Litigation. Drawing on her background in government and private practice, she guided and executed litigation and investigation strategies on behalf of the company. Wong-Ervin worked on many of Qualcomm’s most notable recent cases, including defending the company against a US$1 billion antitrust suit brought by Apple; litigating the largest antitrust consumer class action in US history, alleging claims similar to those brought by the Federal Trade Commission in its case against the company; defending against Broadcom’s hostile takeover attempt; and representing the company in the European Commission’s loyalty-discounts investigation. She also frequently engaged with domestic and international officials on matters involving enforcement and policy.
