In addition, the Bureau conducts merger reviews to determine if a proposed combination will substantially lessen competition. Investigations can be local, regional or national in scope and often are joint investigations with the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice and/or other state attorneys general.

Assistant Attorneys General within the Antitrust Bureau develop and file high-profile, complex cases under state and federal antitrust laws.

Antitrust AAGs also have the opportunity to work closely with other state and federal enforcement agencies.

The ideal candidate will have at least 5 years of litigation experience, including trials, and a working knowledge of the substantive law of antitrust. Background in economics and mergers and acquisitions, a plus.
