Lina M. Khan

U.S. Federal Trade Commission
As chair of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Khan plays a big role in the current federal regulatory review of the residential real estate brokerage industry’s compensation structure. The former professor of law at Columbia Law School is considered hawkish on what constitutes anticompetitive behavior. In fact, she began her time at the FTC reopening the antitrust review of Zillow acquisition of ShowingTime.
