Chair's Message to Membership

I am honored and humbled to assume the leadership of the Antitrust Law Section this month. As I told the Section leaders who gathered virtually and in-person for the Section’s Leadership Summit, I am privileged to stand on the shoulders of giants. I have learned a tremendous amount from former Chairs Gary Zanfagna, Brian Henry, Deb Garza, Jon Jacobson, Bill MacLeod, Roxann Henry, and the Section Chairs and other leaders that came before them and worked with them.
