Molly Boast, a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General, has joined the New York office of WilmerHale as a partner in the anti-trust and competition practice, the firm announced on Wednesday.
Boast has more than 30 years of litigation experience in the public and private sector and has held leadership positions at the Federal Trade Commission and in private practice as well as at the DOJ. WilmerHale said she is “well known in the New York litigation community.” She was previously a partner at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, and before that at LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae LLP.
Boast was Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division from May 2009 to February 2011. From 1999 to 2001, Boast served first as Senior Deputy Director and then as Director of the Bureau of Competition at the FTC.
Michelle Miller and Thomas Mueller, co-chairs of WilmerHale’s antitrust and competition practice, said Boast will bring “a depth of experience from her years of government service and private practice that will be of tremendous benefit to the firm’s clients.”
