Michele Harrington's vast knowledge and experience applying the requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act to acquisitions is well-known and recognized among her peers and others.
Michele was the co-editor of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law's most recent edition of the Premerger Notification Practice Manual, which is a popular primary research tool used by HSR practitioners throughout the United States.
