Practice Areas

We organize the firm's lawyers into a number of highly specialized practice groups capable of responding effectively, efficiently and expeditiously to our clients' increasingly diverse needs. Our practice groups, however, do not operate in isolation; teams of lawyers from any number of these specialized groups often work together to provide a seamless interdisciplinary approach that we find critical to effective problem solving.

Antitrust and Competition

Modern international markets have in recent years proved more susceptible to price-fixing, monopolization, bid-rigging and other anti-competitive practices. Our team of complex litigation professionals have proved particularly skilled in their ability to investigate and prosecute the most sophisticated competition matters in behalf of a diverse universe of businesses and institutions. Our firm draws on resources and expertise in various business sectors developed over the years, to provide a superior understanding and sensitivity to competition and pricing practices which form the basis of potential anticompetitive claims.

Throughout its history, the Firm has represented lead parties in an impressive roster of antitrust class actions where it has worked in conjunction with law enforcement and regulatory authorities both domestically and overseas. The complexities of these matters require an ability to develop strategies and continually novel approaches while working in conjunction with industry experts and economic and damage consultants to insure the successful prosecution of claims against the most well financed, globally based corporations and enterprises.

In recent years, our Firm has shown particular expertise in investigating and prosecuting anticompetitive practices in global financial markets. The following are provided as examples of our more recent representative litigations in this practice area:
