Baker Botts L.L.P. is ‘top-notch in terms of overall responsiveness, client service and budget discipline’. The return of Stephen Weissman, who served as deputy director of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, has ‘considerably strengthened the practice’. The greater part of the group resides in Washington DC, including the ‘highly valuable’ James Kress, John Taladay and Erik Koons, who is praised for his ‘creative approach and excellent substantive knowledge’. Joseph Ostoyich, Thomas Dillickrath, William Henry and William Lavery successfully dismissed, on behalf of Olin Corporation, a direct purchaser class action alleging that the manufacturer had entered into a market allocation agreement in violation of the Sherman Act. Other clients include Philips, Halliburton and the newly won Harold Levinson Associates.
