David C. Kully is an antitrust attorney in Holland & Knight's Washington, D.C., office, head of the firm's Antitrust Team, and a member of the firm's Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice. Mr. Kully has extensive antitrust experience and joined the firm in 2016 after serving as Chief (2013-16) and Assistant Chief (2008-13) of the Litigation III Section of the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) Antitrust Division.
Mr. Kully's practice focuses on antitrust litigation, civil and criminal antitrust investigations by the antitrust enforcement agencies, and counseling clients on the requirements of the antitrust laws. He engages regularly with representatives of the DOJ and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
During his 18 years with the Antitrust Division, Mr. Kully served in central roles on many of the Antitrust Division's most significant matters, achieving a consistent track record of success. For his work on challenges to credit card "anti-steering" rules and to an e-books price-fixing conspiracy, Mr. Kully and his teams were honored with the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service, the DOJ's second-highest performance award. In addition to those high-profile cases, he also supervised and participated in major litigation matters in the residential real estate and appliances industries, and investigations into mergers or other anticompetitive conduct in the music, live entertainment, newspaper, broadcast television, radio, book publishing and movie theater industries.
Before joining the DOJ, Mr. Kully was in private practice at the Washington, D.C., office of a large international law firm and, from there, was recruited to participate as counsel in a special investigation conducted by the U.S. Senate Governmental Affairs Committee into campaign finance irregularities that arose during the 1996 federal election cycle.
