New York firm Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson is taking on the chair of Covington & Burling's antitrust practice for its Washington DC office.
Charles Rule will head Fried Frank's antitrust practice and develop it to capitalise on the firm's already strong corporate, securities and white collar crime groups.
Rule has been a partner at Washington firm Covingtons since 1989, before which he was the youngest ever assistant attorney general in the antitrust department of the US Department of Justice. He served through the Reagan administration and during the beginning of the first Bush administration.
His practice revolves around giving both US and international antitrust advice to clients that include pharmaceuticals giant Eli Lilly, Microsoft, US Airways, the National Basketball Association and Good-year Tire and Rubber Company.
