It would not be an exaggeration to refer to Robert Pitofsky as “Mr. Antitrust.”

As his Oral History makes clear, Pitofsky devoted his professional life to practicing antitrust law, including at two private firms – teaching and writing about antitrust law and policy, including as Dean of Georgetown University Law Center – and enforcing antitrust law, including as Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission and as director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.

His life and legacy are summarized by Brooksley Born, who conducted Pitofsky’s Oral History and who herself served as Chairperson of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
