A litigator and former enforcer at both the Federal Trade Commission and DOJ Antitrust Division, Alex offers clients insightful counseling and advocacy before federal and state antitrust authorities. Alex focuses on technology, energy, and finance, but his work extends to many other important sectors of the economy.
Alex divides his practice between transactions, counseling, and litigation. From 2012-2015, Alex served as antitrust and competition advisor to FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen, counseling her on the agency's numerous investigations, enforcement actions, and policies. He also engaged with enforcers outside the United States on key policy issues, including the proper role of antitrust analysis in intellectual property disputes. Earlier, from 2010-2012, Alex was a trial attorney at the DOJ Antitrust Division focused on technology and finance.
In addition to his government work, Alex has more than a decade of experience in private practice. He has defended the transactions of domestic and international technology, media, and energy clients before antitrust agencies and represented class action defendants in federal and state court litigation around the United States. Before law school, Alex co-founded and sold an online technology company.
