Emily Myers, Antitrust and Special Projects Counsel

Emily Myers juggles a few roles at NAAG. As the antitrust counsel, she helps states coordinate multistate antitrust cases, serves as the liaison with the federal antitrust agencies (the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission), serves as an information clearinghouse for antitrust lawyers in the Attorneys General offices, and maintains the antitrust Web page on the NAAG Web site.

Additionally, she also monitors powers and duties cases---any cases that affect the authority of the Attorney General office. She was a co-editor of the 2nd edition of NAAG’s State Attorneys General: Powers and Responsibilities book, which was published in 2007.

Emily first joined the NAAG staff in 1993 and has been here ever since, except for a several year hiatus ending in 2004. She has worked on antitrust issues for most of her career and really enjoys working with the antitrust lawyers in the Attorneys General Offices.

“Antitrust issues are intellectually challenging and legally interesting. I enjoy seeing the interaction of antitrust laws and antitrust enforcement decisions at the state and federal level.”

Prior to joining NAAG, Emily worked as an associate at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, LLP.

This native Washingtonian resides in the city with her family. She obtained her bachelor’s in history from Brown University and her J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School. She enjoys reading and cheering on the District of Columbia’s various sports teams.
