Dionne Lomax is a Lecturer in the Markets, Public Policy and Law Department at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business and (by courtesy) at Boston University’s School of Law. Prior to joining BU, Dionne dedicated her legal career to analyzing complex business transactions from an antitrust regulatory perspective. As a Partner in two national law firms, she represented high-profile clients in various commercial transactions before the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and various State Attorneys General in connection with mergers and other commercial transactions. Dionne is also the Managing Director of Antitrust and Trade Regulation at Affiliated Monitors, Inc.

As an antitrust attorney specializing in mergers and acquisitions, Dionne was uniquely positioned to work closely with buyers and sellers as they negotiate key aspects of merger agreements. Her transactional experience, while focused on antitrust regulatory issues, exposed her to the entire spectrum of M&A activity. She counseled clients during the bidding process as they made critical decisions regarding strategic partners, and analyzed key aspects of asset purchase agreements to protect client interests during the due diligence process. As such, Dionne has been privy to how laws and regulations impact strategic business decisions, and has witnessed the significant increase in litigation and regulation to which businesses are subjected. Dionne believes that this rise in regulation makes it imperative that the next generation of business professionals understand the nature of the legal system, its role and influence on business operations, and how it impacts business decision making. Her teaching philosophy is to promote student enthusiasm for the law by ensuring that students experience the practical application of a subject with a special emphasis on providing students skills-based simulation exercises as they analyze relevant issues.

Prior to entering private practice, Dionne served as a Trial Attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division’s Health Care Task Force where she analyzed the structure and operation of PHOs and IPAs, investigated health plan mergers, and other collaborative arrangements in the health care industry. She clerked for The Honorable Clifford Scott Green in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and also taught antitrust law as an adjunct professor at Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
