Peter Carstensen wins honors for antitrust writing

Peter Carstensen

Peter Carstensen's 2015 article, “The Philadelphia National Bank Presumption: Merger Analysis in an Unpredictable World,” has been recognized for excellence in antitrust scholarship.

At an annual meeting of the American Antitrust Institute, Carstensen received honors in the Best Merger Analysis category from the Jerry S. Cohen Award for Antitrust Scholarship selection committee.

Carstensen, whose teaching and research have focused on antitrust law and competition policy, is the Fred W. and Vi Miller Chair in Law Emeritus at UW Law School. Besides his scholarship on antitrust law, he has written and researched extensively on buyer power issues and on the operation and regulation of markets for agricultural commodities.

The Jerry S. Cohen Award for Antitrust Scholarship was created through a trust established in honor of the late Jerry S. Cohen, an outstanding trial lawyer and antitrust writer. It is administered by the law firm he founded, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll. Awards are given each year to the best antitrust writing during the prior year.
