Brian Mohr concentrates his practice in the antitrust, trade regulation and litigation areas. Before joining Manatt, he spent close to 39 years at Skadden Arps, where he was nationally known for his work on mergers and acquisitions, focusing on antitrust, premerger notification and coordinating responses to U.S. government agency information requests and subpoenas.
His antitrust and trade regulation experience includes client counseling and advice, research and drafting of pertinent memoranda, briefs, articles, merger analyses, premerger notifications, and opinion letters.
His litigation experience encompasses preliminary injunction hearings, administrative trials, taking and defending depositions, motion practice, and negotiating consent decrees and other settlement agreements. He also has extensive experience in dealing with electronic discovery issues, particularly in the context of government document demands.
He has overseen more than 1,825 successful Hart-Scott-Rodino filings, approximately 140 of which resulted in significant “Second Request” investigations by the Federal Trade Commission or the Department of Justice, with 12 of those ultimately being litigated with the government. No Hart-Scott-Rodino filing or Second Request response overseen by Brian has ever been rejected for failure to comply with the statute and underlying regulations, and no transaction on which he has worked has ever been blocked by government litigation.
