As many of you know, I spent my career with the Antitrust Division in the now closed Philadelphia field Office. I retired from the DOJ in 2013 and split time between Philadelphia and DC, working first with one of the world’s largest firms and then in a very small firm with a few of my colleagues who also had left the Antitrust Division. Over the last 18 months, I have been in transition to Palm Springs, California. I am now a full-time resident of the California—the Golden State.
Since leaving the Antitrust Division, I have represented individuals in white-collar investigations, assisted plaintiffs in class action cases, and provided competition compliance for corporations. I have also successfully handled a number of whistleblower (qui tam) cases. Bid rigging qui tams on public contracts is a particular interest of mine; it always has been from my days at the Antitrust Division. I have also handled various litigation matters such as successfully defending a Chinese company against spurious charges (dropped) that they were importing counterfeit coins. I hope to continue working—on either Coast, as I enjoy visiting back East. I still consult on some matters as Of Counsel with GeyerGorey, but I am now on my own and can be reached here.
I will continue with Cartel Capers and writing for other competition law outlets. I appreciate everyone who reads the blog. Antitrust/competition law has provided me with an extremely interesting career. I’ve been blessed to work in an area that I am passionate about and I’m not done yet.
I have a new email address, though I’ll still get messages from my old address. Bob@reconnollylaw.com.
Thanks for reading.
