Michael Moiseyev, a former assistant director at the Federal Trade Commission who oversaw hundreds of merger reviews, has joined Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

After 30 years at the FTC, Moiseyev will now be a part of Weil’s global antitrust and competition practice, the firm said Monday in a press release.
