I guess I would say that I’ve been very fortunate to have been exposed to lawyers, complex litigation antitrust law from a very early age. I grew up around it, I heard about it at the dinner table, I saw it at home late at night when my father was working on briefs. And I saw it when I was a little boy when I went to his office when I was a kid. It’s always been something, which I’ve felt privileged to be connected to because it’s – I’ve always found it to be interesting, to be challenging and to be important. And it’s important not only because the antitrust cases involve some of the most sophisticated issues in the United States legal system, it’s a place where the law is advanced, but also the litigation involves issues, which go to the core of the United States’ economic systems, the principle underlying the Antitrust Law are fundamental to the United States, they’ve been important since the 19th Century. And frankly, I’m fortunate to be able to continue to practice law in this area today.
