Amy A. Stathos is Deputy General Counsel for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). She joined ICANN in May 2006 as Senior Counsel. Amy manages litigation company-wide and is one of the key staff members responsible for implementation of the New gTLD Program, with emphasis on the relevant dispute resolution processes of the Program. Amy also spends a significant portion of her time supporting the ICANN Board of Directors and, in particular, the Board standing Committees.
Prior to joining ICANN, Amy practiced for many years at Jones Day where she handled complex business and class action litigation with a strong emphasis on both federal and state antitrust and unfair competition matters. Her extensive litigation experience with numerous national and international clients, such major retailers, telecommunications companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, health care providers, oil and gas producers and manufacturers and suppliers in the aerospace industry, makes her extremely well-qualified for her position with ICANN.
In addition to her work with ICANN, Amy has served for many years on the Editorial Board of the ABA Antitrust Section online publication, The Antitrust Source. Prior to this appointment, Amy served as a vice chairperson of the Civil Practice and Procedure Committee of the ABA Antitrust Section.
