An interview with Renata Hesse and Bill Baer

Bill Baer and Renata Hesse.

Renata Hesse says she feels like she is leaving the antitrust agency in good shape. Bill Baer, Hesse’s predecessor as the head of the Department of Justice’s antitrust division, said that as assistant attorney general he had encouraged all branches of the department to get done what was ready to get done before the change in administration. They both sat down with Charles McConnell to discuss achievements, thoughts about former president Barack Obama’s executive order promoting competition, and more.
