Lisa M. Phelan, former Chief of the National Criminal Enforcement and Washington Criminal I Sections of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), is a partner and Co-Chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Global Antitrust Law Practice and Investigations + White Collar Group. With more than 25 years of service at the DOJ as one of the leading authorities in criminal antitrust matters, Ms. Phelan draws upon her unmatched criminal investigations, litigation, and enforcement experience to guide clients through sensitive matters pertaining to international cartel actions and white collar investigations, and to rapidly assess and address their total exposure to potential claims of unlawful collusion.

As Chief of the National Criminal Enforcement and Washington Criminal I Sections of the Antitrust Division, Ms. Phelan supervised and coordinated all investigative and litigation work on international and national criminal cartel cases. Ms. Phelan regularly coordinated investigations and prosecutions with cartel enforcement agencies throughout the world, including in the European Union, Japan, Mexico, Korea, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, and Brazil, among others. She also regularly interfaced with other law enforcement units when investigations raised non-antitrust issues.

Prior to Ms. Phelan’s appointment as Chief of National Criminal Enforcement, she served as a senior criminal litigator at the Antitrust Division, leading investigations and trials of multinational corporations and their executives for price fixing and related crimes. Ms. Phelan has prosecuted more than 300 federal criminal cases, and oversaw dozens of jury trials throughout her tenure at the DOJ.
