MAURICE E. STUCKE
Maurice Stucke is of counsel at the Konkurrenz Group and a tenured law professor at the University of Tennessee. He has twenty years experience handling a range of competition policy issues in both private practice and as a prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice.
At the Antitrust Division, he successfully challenged anticompetitive mergers and restraints in numerous industries, and focused on policy issues involving antitrust and the media. As a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, he prosecuted a variety of felony and misdemeanor offenses. As an associate at Sullivan & Cromwell, Professor Stucke assisted in defending Goldman Sachs, CS First Boston, and Microsoft in civil antitrust litigation. The Legal Aid Society presented him two awards for his criminal appellate and defense work.
Professor Stucke advises clients on mergers, antitrust compliance, privacy, and matters before the competition agencies.
He publishes and speaks regularly on privacy, competition policy, and compliance in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Professor Stucke’s scholarship, which has been cited by the U.S. federal courts, the OECD, the United Nations, competition agencies and policymakers, is already impacting competition policy. He was invited by the OECD and competition authorities from Canada, the European Commission, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, South Korea, United Kingdom and United States to discuss his research.
In 2009, Professor Stucke was asked to serve as one of the United States' non-governmental advisors to the International Competition Network, the only international body devoted exclusively to competition law enforcement and whose members represent national and multinational governmental competition authorities in over 100 jurisdictions.
Professor Stucke also serves as a Senior Fellow at the American Antitrust Institute, where he chaired a committee on the media industry that drafted a transition report for the incoming Obama administration. He serves on the board of the Academic Society for Competition Law and on advisory board of the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies.
In 2015, he was an Academic Visitor at Oxford University's Institute of European and Comparative Law, a Fellow at Oxford's Centre for Competition Law and Policy, and a Senior Associateship at Pembroke College.
Professor Stucke received a number of awards including a Fulbright fellowship to teach at the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing, and the Jerry S. Cohen Memorial Fund Writing Award for his article “Behavioral Economists at the Gate: Antitrust in the Twenty-First Century.”
