RE Connolly Law

Mr. Connolly was a career prosecutor with the Antitrust Division from 1980-2013. He was Chief of a Division regional field office. While few antitrust cases go to trial, Mr. Connolly had a significant number of trials, including obtaining a then record fine of $134 million after a jury convicted an international company of aiding and abetting a price fixing cartel.

In private practice, Mr. Connolly has represented companies and individuals in antitrust and other criminal matters. He authors an award winning blog, Cartel Capers, ( that covers cartels, competition and compliance. His written publications are often cited, including by Judge Richard Posner in Motorola Mobility v. AU Optronics, 775 F.3d 816, 826-27 (7th Cir. 2015).
