Morrison & Foerster announced that Vishal Mehta has joined the firm as a partner in its Global Antitrust Law Practice based in Washington, DC. Mr. Mehta brings a broad range of antitrust experience to Morrison & Foerster, including M&A, investigations, litigation, compliance, counseling, and public affairs. He joins the firm from Baker Botts, where he maintained a full-service antitrust practice with a focus on mergers.

Mr. Mehta has extensive experience representing clients before the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice (DOJ), and competition authorities outside of the US in all phases of the merger review process. He has defended clients in high-profile merger investigations across a range of industries, including technology, media, telecommunications, energy, oilfield services, specialty chemicals, life sciences, agriculture, heavy equipment, consumer products, and retail, among others.

He is the latest addition to Morrison & Foerster’s antitrust team—this summer the firm brought on Lisa Phelan, former Chief of the National Criminal Enforcement and Washington Criminal I Sections of the DOJ’s Antitrust Division.
