Antitrust Litigation partner Eric Hochstadt, who focuses on civil antitrust, class action, and other complex litigation, as well as criminal cartel investigations and antitrust counseling, was interviewed by Global Competition Review on topics including the Supreme Court's decision on the Tyson Foods case, the most interesting issues in antitrust class action litigation right now, and advice for young lawyers who want to focus their career on antitrust work.
Mr. Hochstadt said: “One piece of advice to having a successful career in antitrust law, or in any area of law, is to find great mentors. Actively learning from and observing more senior lawyers from various backgrounds and with different styles is a great way to shorten up the learning curve, find your own voice, and see what aspects of antitrust law…you like best.”
About his personal mentoring experience at Weil, he noted: “During my time at the firm, I’ve been lucky enough to have well over a dozen or more teachers guide me throughout various points of my career and provide me with much needed advice, such as whether and when to go serve as a judicial law clerk, and professional opportunities to grow as a more junior lawyer.”
