The Antitrust Bureau is currently spearheading antitrust investigations into various large technology platforms. The Bureau has also increased its focus on high-profile merger enforcement matters, such as the recent NY-led challenge to the T-Mobile/Sprint merger. The Antitrust Bureau works closely with other state antitrust enforcers on matters of regional or national impact, and with the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. The Antitrust Bureau Chief must be able to interface regularly with other state attorney general offices and representatives of the federal antitrust agencies.

The Antitrust Bureau Chief (BC) will supervise attorneys and support staff in their investigations, case development, and affirmative lawsuits on behalf of the Office. The BC may also serve as the lead litigator and trial attorney in civil actions brought by the Antitrust Bureau.
