Antitrust Division Issues 2019 Annual Newsletter

The Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division today issued the 2019 edition of its annual Spring Newsletter on its website. The Newsletter highlights the Antitrust Division’s recent activities and successes on civil and criminal enforcement, international cooperation, and competition advocacy. The Newsletter also includes a message from Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim.

“In early March 2019, the Division announced this year’s Antitrust AAG Awards, and I encouraged those in attendance to take a moment to remember what they commemorate first and foremost: victories for the American consumer,” said Assistant Attorney General Delrahim in his ‘Message from Makan.’  “Those victories did not come easy. Each of the Division’s attorneys answered the call to public service. They worked long and often unpredictable hours in the office, on the road, and in the courtroom. Every time, though, they came back eager for the next opportunity to do what they do best: represent the United States of America in its mission to enforce the antitrust laws. As we embark on the next year of antitrust enforcement, that mission will carry on.”

The Newsletter highlights these milestones and accomplishments, and features profiles of Division leadership and staff. It can be found at https://www.justice.gov/atr/division-operations/division-update-spring-2019.
