On Monday, February 4, Norton Rose Fulbright announced that Vic Domen, an antitrust and investigations lawyer, has joined its Washington, DC office as a partner.
Mr. Domen comes to Norton Rose Fulbright from the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office, where he served as its senior antitrust counsel. For nearly 20 years, he was the lead lawyer in the investigation and prosecution of federal and state antitrust matters brought on behalf of the State of Tennessee.
As the immediate past chair of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) Multistate Antitrust Task Force, Mr. Domen organized and often led the antitrust investigation and litigation efforts of state attorneys general. He coordinated antitrust enforcement efforts with officials at the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and international antitrust enforcement agencies.
Mr. Domen has reviewed and investigated hundreds of nonprofit mergers, dissolutions, and sales of assets with a special focus on hospital and healthcare transactions. He comes to Norton Rose Fulbright shortly after the arrival of Amanda Wait, a former FTC lawyer who focuses on the antitrust review of global mergers and acquisitions.
Daryl Lansdale, Norton Rose Fulbright’s US Managing Partner, said: “Vic’s in-depth knowledge of the US antitrust laws, coupled with his comprehensive understanding of antitrust issues in the healthcare industry, will be a valuable resource to our clients and, in particular, our healthcare clients.”
Robin Adelstein, Norton Rose Fulbright’s US Head of Antitrust and Competition, commented: “In his role with NAAG, Vic has had a ‘seat at the table’ in all major government antitrust enforcement efforts for the past three years. This unmatched experience across both federal and state antitrust enforcement efforts will help enhance our antitrust practice.”
Mr. Domen, who also investigated matters brought to the AG’s Office by the Tennessee Ethics Commission, said: “I am proud to follow Amanda Wait in joining Norton Rose Fulbright’s impressive antitrust practice. I look forward to working with my new colleagues to provide comprehensive antitrust and investigations solutions to our clients.”
Mr. Domen received his JD from Rutgers University School of Law and his BA in economics from Vanderbilt University.
