As AMI’s Managing Director of Antitrust and Trade Regulation, I am responsible for setting the overall strategy for client matters involving competition and trade regulation issues across a broad range of industries. I started my career as a trial attorney in the Health Care Task Force at the U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division. I have taught antitrust as an Adjunct Professor at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law, am currently teaching Business Law at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business and have taught a Health Care Competition course at the Boston University School of Law. A former Partner at two national law firms, I have represented companies across a wide range of industries in merger and non-merger activities before the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division, Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Competition, and various State Attorneys General.

In which of AMI's service areas have you worked?
We know all of our team members see AMI's work from a different angle and have different perspectives on what AMI brings to the table.
What aspect(s) of AMI's work are you personally most passionate?
I am most passionate about the impartial and balanced perspective we bring to every engagement. Because we are not a law firm, we never advocate certain legal or policy positions for our clients. This gives us the freedom to focus solely on doing excellent work to the satisfaction of all involved in each engagement whether that be monitoring settlement conditions in a consent decree or providing proactive monitoring services.
How do you believe your unique background affects the way you view our work, and in what ways does your personal expertise complement our services?
My significant experience in the health care antitrust area lends itself well to the significant amount of work AMI does in the health care industry. I spent four years as an attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division’s Health Care Task Force focusing on healthcare mergers and alleged anticompetitive conduct. I investigated the structure and operation of independent practice associations and physician hospital organizations, evaluated the legitimacy of provider contracting arrangements, and analyzed proposed hospital and health insurance mergers. This experience lends itself well to many of AMI’s current engagements.
Based on your experiences, what would you like prospective clients to know about AMI?
AMI collectively, and our team members individually, offers deep and significant professional, independent, and objective experience in providing the required compliance oversight. I am most proud of the way that we work as a cohesive team. Every single AMI professional jumps in with their expertise and in other ways to ensure that every single engagement is done well to the satisfaction of all constituencies.
