Partner — Shareholder Litigation & Enforcement

Partner — Labor & Employment

Hill Wellford
Partner — Antitrust
I work with creative people, risk-takers. When their moonshots succeed, they draw antitrust attention. To counsel and advocate for them, I first have to learn about the ways in which they are changing whole industries – that’s fascinating to me.
