Drawing on lawyers in the United States, Europe and Asia, our antitrust litigators combine industry knowledge, technical experience and advocacy skills with strategic and commercial advice to ensure the best outcome for our clients.
In the US, we regularly represent clients across a wide range of industries and counsel them on issues relating to Sherman Act Section 1 price-fixing and market allocation claims; Sherman Act Section 2 monopolization claims, including price discrimination, exclusive dealing, tying and bundling; claims arising under state antitrust and unfair competition laws; exclusive-dealing cases; merger cases. Similarly, in Europe, we have counselled and represented a wide range of clients in relation to cartels, cooperation agreements, dominance cases, mergers, state aid in front of the European Commission and national competition authorities. In addition, we have acted for clients in stand-alone and follow-on actions for damages and injunctions for breaches of competition law in national courts of EU Member States, as well as in appeals to the European Courts against decisions taken by the European Commission.
The team includes former government officials and the group has extensive experience in both civil and criminal antitrust matters, as well as cartel investigations. In particular, the team is known for its involvement in nearly all of the benchmarking matters related to the financial industry, including Interest Rate Swaps, FX, ISDAfix, LIBOR, Treasuries and SSA Bonds.
Our work is also regularly shortlisted for awards. For instance, Global Competition Review named the Air Cargo investigation as its 2016 ‘Matter of the Year’ and The American Lawyer made it its ‘Global Dispute of the Year: International Litigation’ (2016).
