Ms. Harbour is well recognized for her knowledge of evolving areas of competition and consumer protection law, including privacy and data security issues. Ms. Harbour served on the Federal Trade Commission from 2003 until this week. Prior to her service on the Commission, she was an antitrust partner at a New York firm.

Ms. Harbour’s career experience has included frequent speaking engagements, Congressional testimony and publications relating to a wide range of industries and subject areas. The breadth and depth of her knowledge in the energy, health care and privacy fields, as well as her understanding of global antitrust and consumer protection law, will be particularly valuable to Fulbright’s clients.
