“Adam’s first-chair trial ability and substantive knowledge are great additions to our already strong team,” said Hill Welford, Co-Head of Vinson & Elkins’ Antitrust practice. “Antitrust remains a very active area and we expect it to remain so for the foreseeable future, so it makes sense to continue to grow our group.
