"Today, President Joe Biden announced his intent to nominate Jonathan Kanter for Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division at the Department of Justice," the White House said.
Kanter is currently a partner at the Kanter Law Group, a boutique antitrust law firm that advocates in favor of federal and state antitrust law enforcement, the White House said.
"Jonathan Kanter is a distinguished antitrust lawyer with over 20 years of experience. Throughout his career, Kanter has also been a leading advocate and expert in the effort to promote strong and meaningful antitrust enforcement and competition policy," the White House said.
Kanter previously worked as co-chair of the antitrust practice at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton, and Garrison and served as an attorney for the US Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Competition, the White House added.
