                       I. INTRODUCTION

   The year 2015 was a busy year for the Antitrust Division (Division)
of the U.S. Department of Justice (Department)-we opened a number of
investigations, logged a lot of trial time, and recorded several victories of
note, all of which I will quickly highlight in a moment.

* Renata B. Hesse is Acting Head of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. The
following article are remarks as prepared for the Global Competition Review at the 5th Annual
Antitrust Law Leaders Forum on February 5, 2016 in Miami, Florida. Ms. Hesse would like to
thank her colleague Anant Raut, Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General, for his help in
preparing these remarks.
