Miriam R. Vishio

Mimi has extensive litigation and trial experience, representing plaintiffs and defendants in complex antitrust and commercial litigation -- including merger enforcement actions, price-fixing and monopolization cases, and licensing and contractual disputes -- before federal and state courts and in international arbitrations. 

Mimi’s practice centers on antitrust litigation, antitrust compliance counseling, and premerger notification advice and assistance with Hart-Scott-Rodino Act filings. She has experience navigating federal civil and criminal investigations and litigations, complex merger matters, and multi-district antitrust class actions in a diverse array of industries, including financial services, sports, entertainment, advertising, telecommunications, network technology, major appliances, and health insurance. 

Prior to joining Zelle, Mimi was a Trial Attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, where she led conduct and merger investigations and served as a key member of several litigation and trial teams. For her outstanding contributions to the Division’s antitrust enforcement efforts, Mimi received the Attorney General’s Distinguished Service Award (the DOJ’s second highest performance award) and twice received the Assistant Attorney General’s Award of Distinction.  Before joining the DOJ, Mimi was an antitrust litigator at a large national law firm.
