Joseph Simons, the former Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison antitrust co-chair in Washington who is the Trump administration’s pick to lead the Federal Trade Commission, reported earning $1.9 million in partnership share from the firm, according to financial documents published Friday.

Simons, a Paul Weiss lawyer since 2003, was nominated with three others for slots on the FTC, an agency that spent most of 2017 without a full complement of commissioners. Simons would replace Maureen Ohlhausen as chair. Simons earlier led FTC antitrust enforcement as the head of the competition bureau from 2001 until 2003.
