Biography

Mr. Klawiter is a partner in the Antitrust and Trade Regulation Practice Group in the firm's Washington, D.C. office and leads the firm's East Coast Antitrust Practice.

Areas of Practice

Mr. Klawiter's practice focuses on antitrust investigations and litigation - criminal and civil - with special emphasis on international cartel matters. He has defended corporations and executives from six continents in grand jury investigations and prosecutions, including international cartel investigations in the food and feed additives, vitamins, graphite electrode, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, computer products, construction, glass, automotive parts, transportation, plastics and brokerage industries, and has served as international coordinating counsel in many multijurisdictional proceedings. He also has led internal corporate crisis investigation teams in assessing antitrust risk, advising corporate boards and audit committees, and formulating plans to resolve any issues consistent with corporate governance requirements.

Mr. Klawiter has an impressive record of persuading the Department of Justice to decline prosecution of corporate and individual targets of investigations and of seeking and obtaining leniency for corporate clients in the United States and elsewhere.

Mr. Klawiter has trial experience as both a prosecutor and defense counsel in civil, criminal and merger cases. He has served in several senior supervisory and litigation positions with the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice, including Chief of the Dallas Field Office and Special Assistant to the Director of Operations of the Antitrust Division in Washington, DC. He was also the principal author of the first Antitrust Division Manual.

In 2005 - 2006, Mr. Klawiter had the honor to serve as Chair of the American Bar Association's Section of Antitrust Law which, at almost 9,000 members, is the largest association of antitrust lawyers in the world. He previously served as Chair-Elect (2004-05), Vice Chair (2003-04), Program Officer (2001-03), Secretary (2000-01) and as Chair of its Criminal Practice and Procedure Committee (1995-97). For many years, he served as Co-Chair of the Section's International Cartel Task Force.

Most recently, Mr. Klawiter served as Co-Chair of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law's Presidential Transition Report Task Force. The purpose of the report is to brief the Obama Administration on the state of antitrust law and to recommend areas of focus for the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. The Section presented the Report to the Obama Administration in February 2013.

Mr. Klawiter has been a regular speaker at, and organizer of, antitrust programs in the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Russia, Turkey, Japan, Korea, China, Australia and South Africa. He was the organizer, program co-chair, and speaker at the ABA Section of Antitrust Law's International Cartel Workshops, which have been held nine times between 1997 and 2012. He has testified before the International Competition Policy Advisory Committee (ICPAC) on International Cartel Investigations (November 1998), twice before the U.S. Sentencing Commission (2005) and before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary (2006). He is the author of many articles and papers on topics ranging from defense strategy in cartel cases to leniency to antitrust civil remedies.

Mr. Klawiter has been chosen as one of Chambers USA's "Leading Lawyers" in antitrust every year since 2003. Among the comments that Chambers received from clients and peers are that he is "a legend in the area of criminal and cartel investigation work," (Chambers 2008), that his "recent tenure as chair of the ABA's antitrust section has consolidated his reputation as 'a household name' and, according to market sources, broadened his profile considerably. Few can match him as a 'razor sharp' expert on cartel investigations," (Chambers 2007), and "[h]e is especially highly spoken of by clients, who appreciate working with a highly empathetic lawyer who understands their businesses, and 'has a tremendous ability to analyze the facts and the case very well,'" (Chambers 2012). He also has been recognized annually as one of the "Best Lawyers in America," "Super Lawyers," Legal 500 and "Who's Who of International Competition Lawyers." He was selected as Best Lawyers 2013 Lawyer of the Year for Antitrust Litigation in Washington, D.C.
