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.

At Baker & Hostetler LLP, a team including Gregory Commins, practice head Robert Abrams, Robert Brookhiser and Danyll Foix is defending Caterpillar against a lawsuit brought by a would-be importer of Chinese heavy-made equipment; the plaintiff alleges that the client and other manufacturers colluded to limit competition in the US market. John Fornaciari, Foix and Sally Qin are acting for the NYK companies in five class actions wherein it is claimed that the client and other carriers entered into agreements over market allocation and restriction of capacity in the ocean transport of vehicles. Abrams has more than 30 years’ antitrust litigation experience, as does Gregory Baker. Counsel Thomas Hogan is also recommended. All named individuals are based in Washington DC.
