Amanda develops and implements global merger control strategies in “bet the company” transactions. She advises deal makers and other parties in antitrust investigations and litigation before the Federal Trade Commission, Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and state Attorneys General.
A former Federal Trade Commission lawyer, Amanda is an experienced and versatile antitrust professional with experience in multiple industries. She advises deal makers and litigants and combines her in-depth knowledge of agency practice with a business-focused approach to getting deals done. Because she understands that mergers typically happen once or twice in a company's lifecycle—and often bring about tremendous uncertainty—Amanda uses her deep experience and creative thinking to counsel clients on making sound day-to-day business decisions that are informed by the client's strategic goals and antitrust risk.
Amanda is a frequent speaker and writer on antitrust topics including: Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, National Public Radio, and Associated Press.
