His antitrust practice includes representing clients before the Department of Justice in connection with government investigations, and defending companies in matters alleging a range of antitrust-based claims.

Mr. Manthripragada received a law degree in 2007 from the University of California, Los Angeles, where he served as Chief Comments Editor and Articles Editor of the UCLA Journal of Environmental Law & Policy.
