I had many significant moments during my 15+ years at the FTC, but appearing on the cover of the American Lawyer magazine with Bill Baer, George Cary, Phill Broyles, and Bob Doyle after winning the Staples/Office Depot litigation in 1997 has to be at or near the top (the actual real moment is everything it took to convince the naysayers that we had a case). I also clearly remember the 75th Anniversary where the FTC had a special postal mark noting the anniversary. I hope they do it again.
