US: FTC Commissioner to resign and join Hogan Lovells

 |  March 22, 2016

Julie Brill, who has served as a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission since April 2010, will resign her position at the end of this month.

“Commissioner Brill has been an unwavering advocate for consumers and competition during her six-year tenure at the Federal Trade Commission,” said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. “Commissioner Brill’s expertise in consumer protection, privacy, and antitrust has been an asset to the agency, and we are sorry to see her leave. We wish her well on her next steps.”

A Democrat, Brill was appointed by President Obama and sworn in on April 6, 2010. Her last day at the Commission will be March 31, 2016. Brill plans to remain in Washington, DC and will be going into private practice.

Brill will join Hogan Lovells as a partner and co-director of the privacy and cybersecurity practice, the firm said separately.
