Washington, D.C. – Reed Smith today announced that antitrust lawyer Jennifer Driscoll has joined as counsel in the Antitrust and Competition team as part of Reed Smith’s Global Regulatory Enforcement Group in the Washington, D.C. office. With nearly two decades of experience at international law firms, including stints in New York, Paris, and London, Ms. Driscoll is also active in the ABA Section of Antitrust Law and a member of its International Cartel Task Force. She was formerly the Vice Chair of the ABA’s section of International Law and Chair of the Section's 2010 Fall Forum. She has spoken and written frequently on legal issues arising from international cartels and unilateral conduct.

“Jen’s demonstrated skills at strategy and advocacy make her a highly effective practitioner who is adept at defending and advancing clients’ interests and solving challenges they face in the realm of antitrust and competition law,” said Jim Sanders, co-chair of Reed Smith’s Global Regulatory Enforcement Group. “Her command of a wide range of issues and her experience across varied civil and criminal matters make her attuned to the complexities in advising and representing clients in a broad array of antitrust matters.”

“Jen is an enormous antitrust talent who can do it all – cartels, mergers, monopolization – in civil and criminal investigations and litigation,” said Donald Klawiter, ex-chair of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law and a former Office Chief and Special Advisor with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division. “Jen has demonstrated her great talents as an antitrust analyst and advocate for clients around the world. She can be counted on to develop practical and creative solutions that serve the clients' needs and limit their risks.”

At Reed Smith, Ms. Driscoll will work as a member of the firm’s Antitrust & Competition team, focusing her practice on antitrust investigations, litigation, mergers and counseling. She has represented clients in international cartel investigations, merger investigations and Sherman Act section class action lawsuits in federal courts. More recently, she has counseled international clients about antitrust laws relating to mergers and acquisitions and represented both corporations and individuals in the Antitrust Division's investigation of the auto parts industry.
