National Law Journal Names McGuireWoods Partner Howard Feller an Antitrust and M&A ‘Trailblazer’

September 28, 2015

McGuireWoods partner Howard Feller, an acclaimed antitrust lawyer who has held one of the most prestigious leadership positions in his practice, is featured by the National Law Journal in its Antitrust and M&A Trailblazers issue published today. The publication recognizes top legal professionals who have distinguished themselves in the practice of antitrust law and mergers and acquisitions.

Based in McGuireWoods’ Richmond, Virginia office, Feller chairs the firm’s global Antitrust and Trade Regulation Department. His stature as a top practitioner and thought leader was cemented last year when he was elected chair of the American Bar Association’s rel=”noopener noreferrer” highly influential Section of Antitrust Law, enabling him to play a prominent role in shaping antitrust policy and procedure.

Feller began his career at McGuireWoods in 1978 and has helped to build the firm’s leading and growing antitrust practice. His practice focuses on 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.
