His practice focuses on the analysis and resolution of antitrust issues related to mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures, and the analysis and assessment of pre-merger notification requirements. John has extensive experience with the legal, practical, and technical requirements of merger clearance and is regularly invited to participate in Federal Trade Commission and bar association meetings regarding Hart-Scott-Rodino practice issues. John also advises clients on issues related to CFIUS national security reviews, and on CIFIUS submissions when non-U.S. buyers seek to acquire U.S. businesses that have national security sensitivities. This is an area of significant focus under the current administration as new trade and foreign investment policies continue to take shape.
