U.S. Federal Trade Commission Acting Chairwoman Rebecca Kelly Slaughter selected Austin King, previously an attorney-advisor for consumer protection, to serve as associate general counsel for rulemaking. King will lead the rulemaking group in strengthening existing rules and exploring new rules across the FTC’s authorities and mission areas. “Protecting America’s consumers from unfair and deceptive practices is more challenging than ever, so we need to harness all the tools at the FTC’s disposal, including rulemaking,” Slaughter said. Gaurav Laroia will replace King as attorney-advisor for consumer protection.
