D. Bruce Hoffman recently returned to private practice at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP after leading the FTC’s Bureau of Competition from August 2017 until December 2019.  As Director, Bruce led the FTC’s antitrust enforcement and was responsible for developing Bureau policy, supervising the Bureau’s investigations and litigation, and maintaining high-level relations with other leading antitrust enforcers, including the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division, Congress, state Attorneys General, and international enforcers.  Bruce also led the creation of the Bureau’s Technology Task Force to monitor competition in U.S. technology markets, investigate potential anticompetitive conduct in those markets, and take enforcement actions when warranted.

In this presentation, Bruce will share his perspective on an unprecedented two years at the FTC, as Bruce led the Bureau of Competition through a complete change in Commissioner leadership, constitutional challenges to the FTC’s authority, and other tests of the foundations of the FTC.  Bruce will also discuss major accomplishments of the Bureau during his tenure, antitrust developments, and the direction of antitrust law.

Bruce’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by David Ernst, Assistant General Counsel at 3M.
