Since that time, she has developed an international antitrust counseling practice and has represented corporate clients in litigation, arbitrations, and appeals all over the United States. In her antitrust practice, Downey draws on her broad-ranging experience in designing antitrust-compliant pricing and marketing strategies and analyzing proposed mergers, joint ventures, and licensing and distribution agreements. Her diverse industry experience includes agriculture, motor and powersports vehicles, packaged foods, home appliances, medical devices, designer fashion and accessories, and specialty chemicals.
