Delrahim, DOJ antitrust chief nominee, wins praise, but Trump could complicate the job

March 28, 2017, mLex

Deborah Garza is quoted in an mLex article regarding the appointment of Makan Delrahim to head the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division. Commenting on Delrahim’s interest in the nexus between intellectual property and antitrust law, Garza predicts there may be a “rebalancing” related to intellectual property rights and antitrust with Delrahim and FTC acting Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen heading the two agencies with antitrust jurisdiction. She says that in recent years there’s “arguably” been a “shifting a bit more away from the interest of the intellectual property holders.” Delrahim and Ohlhausen share a desire to “make a rebalancing” in the direction of protecting IP rights.

Summing up her take on Delrahim, Garza says, “He brings very well-rounded experience to the table because he’s been in the legislative branch, in the executive branch and in private practice. I think of him as generally aligned with the more traditional approach that we have seen in Republican administrations.”
