Baker & Hostetler LLP’s antitrust practice is noted for its strong East Coast and Midwest coverage. The Washington DC office was particularly active of late, and highlights included representing Caterpillar in private litigation brought by a would-be importer of Chinese-made construction equipment alleging a conspiracy to block the importer from obtaining online distribution; Gregory Commins led. In Philadelphia, Carl Hittinger continues to defend the Deseret News Publishing Company in a case involving the alleged creation of a monopoly in the Salt Lake City newspaper market. The ‘very strong group of attorneys that has a long history of working together’ also includes Lee Simowitz, Robert Brookhiser, who is lauded for his ‘considerable expertise’, and national practice head and ‘strong attorney’ Robert Abrams.
