Neora has added Maureen Ohlhausen, former acting chairman of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), to its legal team in the company’s case against the FTC. Ohlhausen is currently a partner at Baker and Botts LLP and will bring an expertise in consumer protection and competition to Neora’s upcoming battle. Prior to Baker and Botts LLP, Ohlhausen served as acting FTC chairman from 2017 to 2018 and as a commissioner starting in 2012. She has testified numerous times before Congress and been recognized with several awards, including the FTC’s Robert Pitofsky Lifetime Achievement Award. Neora’s legal team will focus on the FTC recent “attempt to enact a new retroactive interpretation of how direct selling companies can operate,” according to Deborah Heisz, co-CEO of Neora.
