Stanford University - Stanford Law School
JD /MBA Candidate

Andrew McCreary’s 2019 paper Exit Strategy, co-authored with Mark A. Lemley, explains how venture capital drives concentration, not disruption. The paper recommends newly burdening incumbents in merger reviews, among other reforms, to renew competition. That recommendation was incorporated into the U.S. House Subcommittee on Antitrust’s 2020 report on competition as one of few endorsed by the subcommittee’s Republican members, and is central to Senator Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) proposed antitrust legislation. The paper has since been published in the Boston University Law Review. Shorter versions appear in The American Conservative, Le Concurrentialiste, and Fortune. After attending Deep Springs College, McCreary graduated summa cum laude from Yale College. He has worked in ranching; architecture; city planning, policy, and operations; and on the management team of a civic tech company. He will graduate this spring with his JD/MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Stanford Law School, where he was Editor in Chief of the Stanford Technology Law Review and won the Gerald Gunther Prize in Antitrust.
