Position

Profiled by The American Lawyer as having made one of “the most important lateral moves in 2011” and one of the “biggest stars” from the former Howrey law firm to hit “the open market,” Bob Abrams chairs BakerHostetler’s nationwide Antitrust group, which has more than doubled in size in recent years. A Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers with more than 30 years of trial experience, Bob has tried antitrust cases on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, and also class actions and other complex commercial cases. Prior to joining BakerHostetler, Bob co-chaired Howrey’s Global Litigation Group.


United States: Antitrust

Civil litigation/class actions

Within: Civil litigation/class actions

Baker & Hostetler LLP’s team acts for plaintiffs and defendants in cases involving the full range of anti-competitive practices. Gregory Commins, practice head Robert Abrams, Robert Brookhiser, Danyll Foix and others represented Caterpillar as one of the co-defendants in litigation involving a number of claims made by the plaintiff (an importer of Chinese-made heavy equipment), including monopolization, exclusive dealing and group boycott. In addition to standalone business-to-business antitrust actions, it assists with class actions and MDLs, as well as contentious merger-related work. John Fornaciari, Robert Disch and Carey Busen are names to note in Washington DC, along with Commins, Abrams, Brookhiser and Foix. New York-based Torello Calvani, who made partner in 2016, and Columbus-based Mark Hatcher are also recommended.
