S.F. ANTITRUST ACE GETS D.C. POSITION Marc Siegel, second-in-command of the Department of Justice’s San Francisco antitrust division, is heading to Washington, D.C., to become director of criminal enforcement for the division nationwide. Siegel has served as San Francisco assistant chief since 2003. San Francisco is one of the antitrust division’s busiest field offices. In recent years, it has taken the lead in filing criminal cases breaking up international price-fixing cartels. Recently, Siegel led several prosecutions of worldwide chemical industry cartels, convicting many of the largest chemical companies in the world of price-fixing and winning criminal fines of more than $150 million, said San Francisco Division Chief Phillip Warren. “For years, Marc has been one of the antitrust division’s most experienced and skilled prosecutors,” Warren said. Warren said Siegel’s new position has him overseeing the DOJ’s anti-cartel efforts nationwide. Siegel was traveling Wednesday and could not be reached for comment. Siegel began his career as an antitrust trial attorney in San Francisco in 1985. The Washington position opened when Scott Hammond was appointed to serve as deputy assistant attorney general for criminal antitrust enforcement. — Jeff Chorney
