Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft has recruited the chair of the antitrust practice at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson. Charles "Rick" Rule, who will chair Cadwalader's antitrust practice from the firm's D.C. office, headed the DOJ's antitrust division under President Reagan and was a top lawyer for Microsoft in its antitrust battle with the feds. His recruitment is a coup for Cadwalader, which recently saw the defection of prior antitrust chair Steven Sunshine and two other partners to Skadden.
