FIRESIDE CHAT WITH U.S. DOJ ANTITRUST DIVISION CHIEF OF TECHNOLOGY & FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTION AARON HOAG
By Karen E. Silverman1
The 29th Annual Golden State Institute was honored to host a fireside chat with Aaron Hoag, the U.S. Department of Justice Division Chief of the Technology and Financial Services Section, on civil antitrust enforcement and competition issues in the technology space.
MS. SILVERMAN: Thank you very much. Aaron and I worked together for a number of years on bar-related stuff and on casework, so it’s my very great pleasure to have the opportunity to talk to you today.
Aaron started the antitrust division in 1997 in the mergers task force. He was briefly in the front office and then moved over to, I will also call it "net tech," but it’s the technology and financial services section in 2003 and then rose to lead that section in 2016, and for any of you who have worked with Aaron wouldn’t be surprised to witness his rise to leadership in that area.
