Christine Varney on the move

with one comment

It has been reported that Christine Varney, the U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust will be stepping down from her job in order to join Cravath, Swaine & Moore.

Varney´s professional bio is probably the one within the antitrust world that I´m most envious of  has impressed me the most. Not only she has been Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust (2009-11), a FTC Commissioner (1994-97), and a Partner at Hogan Hartson; she has also worked as General Counsel to the Democratic National Committee (1989 to 1992), Chief Counsel to the Clinton/Gore Campaign (1991), General Counsel to the 1992 Presidential Inaugural Committee (1992), and Assistant to President Clinton and Secretary to the Cabinet (1993–1994).  Not bad, huh?

P.S. Could anyone imagine her EU counterpart -Commissioner Almunia- ever making a similar move?
