    Message from Chair Gary Zanfagna

    It is my privilege and pleasure to serve as Chair of the ABA Antitrust Law Section for the 2020-21 ABA fiscal year.  Welcome!

    This is an exciting time to be an Antitrust Law Section Member.  Antitrust is at an inflection point.  Our nation is debating the future of antitrust, and the conversation is happening everywhere – in the media, on Capitol Hill, in the election dialogue, as well as in our antitrust community. People are asking: Is antitrust doing its job?  Is antitrust up to the challenges of 21st century competition? Do the rules need to be changed?

    I firmly believe that the Antitrust Law Section should have a voice in the conversation.  As practitioners, we have a unique perspective on how the current antitrust laws work (and don’t work).  My focus as Chair is to elevate the conversation and ensure that our voice is heard.  My substantive theme for the year is the Future of Antitrust.  You will see this theme addressed and highlighted throughout the year.
