Civil litigation/class actions

Within: Civil litigation/class actions

Covington & Burling LLP’s antitrust litigation practice, which is co-chaired by Derek Ludwin in Washington DC and Emily Henn in Palo Alto, has a strong reputation for cutting-edge, highly complex matters, and draws work from clients in sectors such as technology, financial services and pharmaceuticals. Ludwin, Gregg Levy and others recently represented the National Football League in two class actions, one of which involved defending the client in multi-district litigation (MDL) concerning its television broadcasting arrangements. In the auto parts arena, Anita Stork (San Francisco), Ashley Bass, Michael Fanelli and others are acting for Alps Electric in a putative class action concerning alleged price-fixing of heater control panels. In addition to managing cases heard domestically, the US group operates as part of a wider network to assist with cross-border matters, including litigation that is connected to government investigations. Thomas Barnett, Deborah Garza and Robert Wick are other highly regarded practitioners. Named attorneys are based in Washington DC except where otherwise indicated.
