In this podcast, AAI President Diana Moss sits down with leading private antitrust enforcers, Roberta D. Liebenberg and Heidi M. Silton. Liebenberg and Silton weave together their deep insights and experience to discuss key aspects of the importance and role of women and diverse attorneys in antitrust, and in the plaintiff’s bar, in particular. Moss, Liebenberg, and Silton begin with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulties it poses for advancing diversity in the practice of antitrust law. They then turn to the broader topic of why antitrust is an important and rewarding practice area for diverse attorneys. As part of the conversation, they touch on the importance of diverse attorneys in leadership roles, best practices for plaintiff firms in advancing diversity, the importance of diversity as a business model, and ways to build community.
