Frederick J. Horne

Frederick J. Horne is of counsel in Steptoe's Washington office, where he is a member of the firm’s Transportation Group. His practice focuses on economic issues that arise in regulatory and antitrust contexts. From 1998 through 2000 Mr. Horne was an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Competition. While at the Bureau, Mr. Horne served in the Office of Policy and Evaluation, in Mergers II, and as an assistant to Bureau Director Richard Parker. Mr. Horne worked on numerous high-profile cases during his time at the Commission, including conduct investigations concerning Intel, several conduct investigations concerning pharmaceutical companies, and merger investigations of Barnes & Noble, Exxon/Mobil, AOL/Time Warner, and AstraZeneca/Novartis.

Antitrust

Mr. Horne counsels clients regarding compliance with the Sherman, Clayton, Robinson-Patman, and Federal Trade Commission Acts. His experience encompasses not only various forms of conduct—price-fixing, market division, boycotts, communications between competitors, monopolization, and joint ventures—but also competition issues that arise from mergers and acquisitions. In particular, Mr. Horne has developed significant experience in transportation-related industries. Mr. Horne represents clients in connection with antitrust investigations by both the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission.

Transportation Regulation and Litigation

Mr. Horne represents transportation industry clients before the Surface Transportation Board and in litigation that involves regulatory issues or complex economic evidence. Mr. Horne has represented railroads, motor carriers, and industry trade organizations in proceedings before the Board, in federal court litigation, and in arbitration proceedings. Issues involved in those proceedings have included rail rate regulation, the state of competition in the railroad industry, proposals for partial re-regulation of the rail industry, federal preemption of state and local regulation, antitrust immunity, and complex contractual disputes. In connection with his representations, Mr. Horne frequently works with expert witnesses in the development of reports and testimony on economic and statistical matters.
