Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer announced today that Bill Baer, former Acting Associate Attorney General and Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust at the US Department of Justice (DOJ), will rejoin the firm as partner on June 1, 2017, resident in the Washington office.

Bill brings broad public policy expertise to the firm’s preeminent antitrust practice. His experience in the public and private sectors makes him a seasoned and trusted advisor on crisis management and high-stakes matters, including bet-the-company litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and other government civil and criminal investigations, both domestically and internationally.

“I am honored to rejoin Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer,” said Bill. “And I look forward to assisting its clients in taking on tough challenges here and around the world. I know well the firm’s rich tradition and commitment to public and pro bono service and I look forward to being part of its bright future. There is no better place to practice law.”

The move to private practice marks Bill’s second return to the firm after public service.
