Brian C. Mohr
Mr. Mohr is counsel to the antitrust department of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP, resident in the Washington, D.C. office.
For more than 25 years, Mr. Mohr has concentrated on antitrust, trade regulation and litigation. He is nationally known for his work on mergers and acquisitions, focusing on Hart-Scott-Rodino premerger notification and coordinating responses to the U.S. government agency information requests and subpoenas. He has overseen more than 1,350 successful Hart-Scott-Rodino filings, approximately 125 of which resulted in “Second Request” investigations by the Federal Trade Commission or the Department of Justice. He has focused on electronic discovery issues, particularly in the context of government document demands.
No Hart-Scott-Rodino filing or Second Request response overseen by Mr. Mohr has ever been rejected for failure to comply with the statute and underlying regulations, and no transaction on which he has worked has ever been blocked by government litigation. His antitrust and trade regulation experience includes client counseling and advice, research and drafting of pertinent memoranda, briefs, articles, merger analyses, premerger notifications and opinion letters. His litigation experience encompasses preliminary injunction hearings, administrative trials, taking and defending depositions, motion practice and negotiating consent decrees and other settlement agreements.
