antitrust litigation, civil and criminal antitrust investigations, antitrust merger investigations and commercial litigation. He has worked with diverse
industries and has helped to change the way businesses learn about antitrust laws.
He has conducted audits for clients in more than 20 countries, helping businesses detect and remedy antitrust risks through interviews, email review and
risk analysis. Feller has trained hundreds of business people by using “real-world” scenarios in interactive training sessions to enhance their
understanding of how antitrust laws apply to their daily work.
Feller is one of six McGuireWoods lawyers who currently hold leadership positions in the ABA’s Section of Antitrust Law. During his year-long term as
chair, the Section’s International Task Force issued a report on best practices for government enforcement procedures. Feller also challenged Section
leaders to be more proactive in analyzing and commenting on changes that should be made in antitrust laws and government enforcement practices.
