Steptoe & Johnson has added two attorneys to its antitrust and competition practice in Washington, the firm announced Thursday.
Edward Schwartz and Andrew Lee join Steptoe as partners from Shearman & Sterling and White & Case, respectively. Lee was previously an associate at White & Case.
Schwartz focuses on antitrust, complex litigation, mergers and non-merger antitrust investigations by regulators. He has defended clients in cases of antitrust, conspiratorial conduct, unilateral conduct and price discrimination.
Lee, who is fluent in Korean, advises domestic and international clients on antitrust compliance and counseling, criminal antitrust defense, civil class actions and litigation. He previously worked at the Federal Trade Commission where he investigated mergers in the retail, energy, e-commerce and telecommunications industries.
“Ed and Andrew bring significant experience representing clients in a range of industries in antitrust litigation, investigations and counseling,” Roger Warin, chair of the firm, said in a written statement.
