One of the “Best Places to Work in the Federal Government,” the Federal Trade Commission is the place to be for talented attorneys, law students, and honors paralegals who are passionate about antitrust law, preserving competitive markets, and protecting American consumers. Bureau of Competition attorneys are among the best in the antitrust world and their work ensures that our markets are open and free, allowing for lower prices and better quality goods and services.
The FTC is an independent agency, and the Bureau of Competition is dedicated to preventing anticompetitive mergers and business conduct that can lead to higher prices, reduced service, less innovation, and fewer choices for consumers. Our attorneys, paralegals, and interns work with economists in collaborative teams to investigate unlawful business practices and, when necessary, bring cases through the Commission's administrative process or in federal court.
Our collegial and inclusive work environment, early opportunities to take on meaningful assignments, commitment to training and professional development, and excellent federal benefits package are among the key reasons why we have been consistently named a “Top 10 Agency” by the Partnership for Public Service.
