United States: Antitrust


Within: Cartel

Fielding a team of 35 attorneys across its Washington DC, New York and San Francisco offices, Hogan Lovells US LLP continues to be involved in many multi-jurisdictional cartel investigations. Recently the firm has been kept busy with matters related to autoparts, car shipping, pharmaceuticals, and LIBOR. The firm counts Air Canada and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries among its active key clients. Antitrust practice head Janet McDavid, former assistant chief of the DOJ’s Antitrust Division Kathryn Hellings, and San Francisco-based Megan Dixon are the key partners. Rachel Brandenburger works as a senior adviser in New York. The practice recently lost two partners: Corey Roush moved to Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, while litigator Steven Edwards joined Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP. All attorneys are based in Washington DC except where stated otherwise.

Civil litigation/class actions

Within: Civil litigation/class actions

Hogan Lovells US LLP is active across all areas of antitrust law and leverages its global network in handling high-profile cross-jurisdictional disputes. The team includes San Francisco-based Megan Dixon, a former prosecutor in the DOJ’s Antitrust Division, whose sector expertise spans healthcare and hi-tech among others; former DOJ assistant attorney general for antitrust Sanford Litvack, who is based in New York; and Benjamin Holt, in Washington DC, who is regularly retained in complex class action matters. Recent highlights include representing Daimler Trucks North America in two putative class actions alleging a conspiracy between all the major manufacturers of heavy duty trucks, and acting for Credit Suisse in an MDL relating to allegations of collusion in the CDS exchange markets. Robert Robertson played a key role in both of those matters and comes highly recommended.
