September 21, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 21, 2023 — Arnold & Porter announced today that David Emanuelson has joined the firm’s Antitrust practice as a partner. He brings a strong background handling antitrust litigation and government investigations in the global technology and pharmaceutical sectors.

Debbie Feinstein, chair of Arnold & Porter’s Global Antitrust practice, said: “Advising leading technology and pharmaceutical companies is an important and growing part of our antitrust practice. David’s extensive in-house experience will help us better serve our tech and pharma clients across the full range of government merger and conduct investigation, private litigation, and counseling matters.”

Emanuelson previously led Intel’s global M&A regulatory practice, advising on worldwide merger approval and foreign investment for strategic transactions. He also led responses to antitrust conduct investigations by various government agencies, including the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice, and the European Commission. Prior to his in-house experience, Emanuelson spent over a decade representing clients in complex antitrust litigation and government investigations in the microprocessor, chemicals, telecommunications, airline, television, dairy, and automotive refinishing paint industries.

In joining the firm, Emanuelson commented: “I was drawn to Arnold & Porter because its Antitrust practice is widely known for deftly handling high-stakes matters for the world’s most sophisticated companies. The firm’s global reach and integrated platform will allow me to collaborate with my new Arnold & Porter colleagues when our clients face their most important and challenging matters in the United States and around the world, particularly matters that combine antitrust with other regulatory reviews.”

Emanuelson earned his J.D. from University of Illinois School of Law and his B.S. from Northern Illinois University.
