Robin evaluates the competitive impact of proposed transactions, counsels clients on communications between or among competitors, and cautions clients on antitrust “gun-jumping” — actions aimed at expediting the integration of two companies before the transaction has closed. Robin has prepared more than 300 notifications to report planned transactions to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) under the Hart-Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act. She has also worked with local counsel in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and South America to coordinate filings under the antitrust and competition laws of at least two dozen other countries.
Before she transitioned into law, Robin worked in higher education administration and higher education financial policy. She worked for the Harvard Graduate School of Design for several years before moving to Washington, D.C., where she worked as a policy analyst and senior writer for the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance (ACSFA) and the Consortium for the Advancement of Private Higher Education.
Robin is an avid reader and a frequent consumer of the best of theater and chamber music offerings.
