Former Justice Department Antitrust Chief Sharis Pozen will join the antitrust group at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP's Washington, D.C., office in a leadership role starting in September.
Pozen left DOJ at the end of April...Skadden is an international firm with one of the leading antitrust practices.
Pozen had served as acting assistant attorney general since August 2011. She is a longtime confidante of Christine Varney, the former assistant attorney general for antitrust at DOJ, who left in August to join Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York.
At this rate, it might actually make significant progress toward closing the federal deficit to apply the Glenn Reynolds anti-revolving door tax of "A 50% surtax on anything earned within five years after leaving the federal government, above whatever the federal salary was."
