The Antitrust Cop and the Tech Industry: Christine Varney aims to reinvigorate antitrust policy without stifling U.S. business, but Google and Intel could be among her targets

Date: July 30, 2009
Author: Spencer E. Ante
QUOTE: Varney says her goal is to bring antitrust law back to its historical center, not simply to go after giants because of their size. "We are not anti-big in any way, shape, or form," says Varney, a former Federal Trade Commissioner who spent the past 12 years representing corporations as a partner at the Washington law firm Hogan & Hartson. "But with enormous success comes responsibility." Varney says the Justice Dept. will be taking a look at a range of industries including transportation and technology.
