Donald I. Baker will receive the AAI Alfred E. Kahn Award for Antitrust Achievement at the American Antitrust Institute's Annual Conference on June 18.
Mr. Baker is founding partner of the independent Washington D.C. law firm Baker & Miller PLLC, specializing in antitrust, competition policy and international law issues. Mr. Baker¹s efforts have included comprehensive aspects of antitrust counseling, representing complainants, as well as targets in various government investigations, corporate internal investigations, major arbitrations, and several private antitrust cases for plaintiffs and defendants.
Mr. Baker was selected to receive the AAI Alfred E. Kahn Award for Antitrust Achievement because he continues to play a leading role in the antitrust community as a public-spirited and creative antitrust enforcer, practitioner, law professor, and commentator. His rich and varied career in antitrust is a remarkable illustration of a commitment and dedication to the competition enterprise. He is an inspiration for current and prospective practitioners, enforcers, and policymakers. The AAI especially appreciates his long-term role as an active but unofficial pro bono counselor, and as former member of the AAI Advisory Board (1997-2005).
Mr. Baker is the 17th recipient of the Alfred E. Kahn Award for Antitrust Achievement and joins past honorees: Joel Klein, Robert Pitofsky, F.M. Scherer, Alfred E. Kahn, Lloyd Constantine, Thomas B. Leary, Senators Herb Kohl and Mike DeWine, Maxwell Blecher, John Shenefield, Eleanor M. Fox, Steven Salop, Mario Monti, Roger G. Noll, Kathleen Foote and John M. Connor.
