WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Department of Justice's Antitrust Division today named Lawrence R. Fullerton of Fairfax, Virginia, as the Division's Chief of Staff.

Fullerton, 43, will be the first person to hold this position in the Division.

Anne K. Bingaman, Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division, said Fullerton will assist her and the Division's deputies in managing the Division's expanding caseload and public policy activities.

"We are extremely lucky to have Larry join the Division. He brings a wealth of antitrust and other experience from private law practice and his work on the Hill to this critically important position."

Before joining the Division, Fullerton was a partner in the Washington, D.C, office of Powell, Goldstein, Frazer and Murphy, where he had an antitrust and regulatory, legislative and counseling practice before Congress and a variety of Executive Branch agencies. Bingaman was a former partner and head of the D.C. Litigation Department at Powell, Goldstein, Frazer and Murphy.

Fullerton received his J.D. and M.A. degrees from the University of Virginia in 1978, and his B.A. from Princeton University in 1974. He served as Senior Counsel on the Republican Staff of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation from 1981 to 1985. He has been a lecturer at the University of Virginia School of Law, Cornell Law School, and Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

Fullerton also has been active in bar association activities. He currently serves on the Council of the American Bar Association's Section of Antitrust Law. From 1991 to 1994, he was chairman of the Section's Federal Trade Commission Committee. He writes and speaks frequently on topics related to antitrust, consumer protection and regulation of foreign investment in the United States.
