Melinda Haag Discusses San Francisco Office, White Collar Growth in Recorder Q+A
March 28, 2023
Litigation partner Melinda Haag was featured in a wide-ranging Q+A interview in The Recorder, in which she discussed the growth of Paul, Weiss’s San Francisco office over the past two years. In “Melinda Haag Talks West Coast Growth, White Collar Buzz at Paul Weiss,” published on March 28, Melinda also discusses how her practice has evolved since joining the firm; the various challenges and opportunities female trial lawyers face today; the DOJ’s new enforcement priorities; and how increasing scrutiny of the tech sector is propelling a white collar boom for Paul, Weiss, among other topics.
“Regulatory inquiries and investigations into tech companies by state attorneys general and federal regulators slowed down during the pandemic as other priorities took precedence, but now regulators are wide awake and making up for lost time,” Melinda says. “In California specifically, we’ve seen an uptick in DOJ antitrust enforcement activity around Bay Area tech companies.”
