He advises clients on a range of pricing and distribution issues and helps clients close mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures worth billions of dollars annually.

In 2017, Global Competition Review recognized him as one of the leading antitrust lawyers under the age of 45.
Darren regularly speaks and writes on antitrust issues relevant to technology, energy, and life science companies, as well as on competition agency practice and procedure. He has taught an advanced antitrust seminar as an adjunct professor at Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University and has served in various editorial advisory positions for publications such as Antitrust Law Developments, the ABA’s Antitrust Source and Law360 Competition.
