US: Antitrust litigator joins Akin Gump

 |  September 4, 2016

Akin Gump has hired Dechert’s Gorav Jindal, a specialist in the pharmaceutical industry and a former antitrust attorney at the Federal Trade Commission, at a time when antitrust breaches are on US government enforcement agencies’ radar.

Antitrust litigator Gorav Jindal has arrived at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld’s litigation practice as a partner in Washington, DC, from Philadelphia-headquartered Dechert, where he was a partner in the antitrust practice for three years, having previously served at that firm as an associate for nine years and an attorney for one year.

Jindal began his legal career at the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC), where he spent almost two years as an antitrust attorney in the Bureau of Competition, investigating merger and acquisitions transactions in the publishing, computer hardware and chemical industries.

In his private practice, he assists corporates under investigation by the FTC and the US Department of Justice (DoJ), and also deals with evaluation and allocation of antitrust risk in deal documents, as well as issues arising from theHart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, which places an obligation on companies to make a detailed filing with the FTC and the DoJ before completing certain mergers.
