Boston, MA, September 26, 2016 – Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP announced today that Robert Buchanan, Jr., chair of the firm’s Antitrust Group, has been named to the National Law Journal’s (NLJ) annual list of “Antitrust Trailblazers.” According to the NLJ, “these talented legal professionals…are raising the bar to achieve favorable outcomes for their companies and clients.”
