Meet Mark Hegedus

Attorney, Office of the General Counsel

The FTC is a challenging and fulfilling place to work.

Working at the FTC has made me happy being a lawyer. When I came to the agency in 2008, I had been practicing law in both the private and public sectors for 17 years. In my prior positions, I always had doubts about whether a career as a lawyer was the right choice. At that time, I could not quite identify what was missing. I now know.

In my work as an appellate litigator in the FTC’s Office of the General Counsel, I am always learning something new. I work on cases that help individuals in both the consumer protection and competition areas. I work on cutting-edge issues, including before the U.S. Supreme Court. I also generally have predictable work hours, which gives me the ability and time to sing in two choral ensembles. The FTC is a challenging and fulfilling place to work; I’m in it for the long term.
