 |  February 25, 2021

International law firm McDermott Will & Emery announced that Lesli C. Esposito, Brian J. Boyle, and Justin P. Murphy joined the Firm’s antitrust practice as partners based in Washington, DC. Timothy (Ty) C. Carson also joined as antitrust counsel. The group’s combined experience in private and government sectors provides clients with increased antitrust capabilities to tackle intricate enforcement policies emerging in a rapidly evolving, high-tech, and post-pandemic environment.

“With the likelihood of increasing enforcement activity impacting key business priorities, our clients need a strategic partner by their sides. Our new teammates will lead our clients to success in and outside the courtroom,” Ray Jacobsen, global head of McDermott’s regulatory practice, said. “Each of these lawyers is a recognized leader among the most nuanced areas of antitrust law and brings a deep understanding of risk mitigation strategies to protect consumers and businesses.”

Prior to joining McDermott, Lesli served as co-head of DLA Piper’s global antitrust and competition group, where she worked alongside Brian. Justin most recently worked as a trial lawyer for the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division and previously worked in private practice for 15 years. Ty most recently served as attorney with the Federal Trade Commission’s Premerger Notification Office and specializes in Hart-Scott-Rodino filings.
