Senior Associate, New York, Washington, D.C.
Dan Shulak is a senior associate in our Antitrust, Competition and Economic Regulation practice group, working primarily with our team in New York and Washington, D.C. Dan has a diverse antitrust practice focusing on antitrust litigation, antitrust clearance of mergers and acquisitions, criminal cartel investigations, and other non-merger antitrust investigations. Dan represents clients in matters before the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), as well as in litigation before U.S. Federal District Courts.
With respect to mergers and acquisitions, Dan has conducted pre-merger analyses of the antitrust risk associated with transactions in a wide variety of industries. Dan has worked on matters where the team has successfully advocated for merger clearance prior to the close of the HSR waiting period (i.e., early termination), as well as after receiving and responding to "Second Requests."
In the area of criminal cartel investigations, Dan has experience representing corporations in both internal and DOJ grand jury investigations related to alleged cartel activities. Recently, Dan has been a key member of the global team responsible for concurrent cartel investigations in multiple jurisdictions around the world, including the United States, European Union, Japan, South Africa, and China, among others. In addition, Dan has experience representing companies in the follow-on litigation resulting from government investigations into alleged anticompetitive activities. Dan has authored or co-authored several published articles dealing with competition compliance and cartel investigations.
In addition to follow-on litigation stemming from government investigations, Dan also has experience representing companies in other types of competition-based litigation, including allegations of illegal monopolization in violation of the Sherman Act.
Beyond his work on behalf of clients, Dan is also active in firm activities and pro bono matters. Dan serves as co-chair of the New York Associates Committee and sits on the firm's U.S. Associates Committee. He is currently involved in several ongoing pro bono litigation matters. Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Dan served as an Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Prosecutions Bureau at the New York State Office of the Attorney General, where he prosecuted white collar crimes.
