New BC trial chief

Share This Page

I am happy to announce that Chuck Loughlin will replace Tara Reinhart as Chief Trial Counsel for the Bureau when Tara leaves the Commission later this week.  Chuck joined the Bureau in September 2015, as the Deputy Chief Trial Counsel of the litigation group, bringing over 20 years of experience in antitrust litigation, first at Howrey LLP and then at Baker Botts, where he was a partner in the antitrust group. Before coming to the FTC, Chuck litigated cases in a number of industries, including pharmaceuticals, financial services, grocery distribution, high-tech, automobiles, and construction equipment. Since joining the Commission, Chuck has been an integral part of our busy litigation group.  Most importantly, he played a pivotal role in the Commission’s successful challenge to the Staples/Office Depot merger, conducting key direct examinations and participating in every aspect of the day-to-day conduct of the case.  Chuck is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Georgetown University Law Center.

I look forward to working with Chuck in his new role.
