Joel R. Grosberg was quoted on November 13 by Law360 in an article regarding how Obama's administration will affect the Department of Justice's (DOJ) stance on antitrust issues. "The head of the antitrust division makes the policy and either supports or doesn't support the staff and influences how aggressively staff will enforce the antitrust laws," said Mr. Grosberg. Mr. Grosberg added that it may be tougher to get problematic deals through the DOJ, and the antitrust division may take a closer look at transactions. "We may see more second requests in general. The staff may have more support from senior officials to issue second requests, even in transactions where, at the end of the day, it's unclear whether enforcement actions will be required," he said.
