US: Reed Smith snags antitrust partner from Steptoe & Johnson

 |  May 28, 2018

Reed Smith has bolstered its regulatory enforcement group by snagging Edward Schwartz, a partner from Steptoe & Johnson, to help lead its antitrust practice out of its Washington, D.C., office.

“Ed joins us as clients across the globe face shifting and increasingly complicated antitrust enforcement challenges and litigation risks,” said James Sanders, Co-Chair of Reed Smith’s Global Regulatory Enforcement Group. “To achieve their key strategic objectives, clients require the sort of antitrust litigation and enforcement experience as well as the competition guidance that Ed provides, drawing on his 30 years of experience in this critical field. His full-time presence in DC means that Ed will serve clients from where much of the nation’s consequential antitrust enforcement and litigation occurs.”

Schwartz represents companies before the US Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, the Federal Trade Commission, and state attorneys general in antitrust merger and non-merger investigations. He also has deep experience representing clients in antitrust class actions, other private antitrust litigation and commercial disputes, including through trial.
