Tracy (Januzzi) Penfield knows how important your deal is to you. She focuses on antitrust clearance and analysis of mergers and acquisitions, particularly those involving multijurisdictional investigations and Second Request reviews. Tracy's clients rely on her practical advice and solutions during the merger review and clearance process.

Tracy has a particular focus on transactions in the energy and natural resources industry, but also advises on transactions in an array of other industries, including defense, consumer, financial institutions, and technology, media, and telecom.

Tracy's clients also rely on her problem-solving ability and industry know-how when they seek her advice on a wide range of antitrust issues, including non-merger government investigations, strategic collaborations, joint ventures, pricing and distribution matters, and general antitrust compliance.

Tracy has assisted in representing clients in matters before both the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission, as well as various U.S. federal courts.
