Position

Rory A. Leraris is a partner in Cravath’s Litigation Department.  Her practice focuses on antitrust, M&A, securities and derivative litigation, and other complex commercial disputes.


United States: Antitrust

Civil litigation/class actions: defense

Within: Civil litigation/class actions: defense

The advice provided by Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP's antitrust team is 'practical and takes business realities into consideration'. David Marriott and Lauren Moskowitz are currently representing Alcon Laboratories in over 50 putative class actions alleging violations of Section 1 of the Sherman Act by the client's pricing policies for its contact lenses. Also notable are Evan Chesler, Peter Barbur, Rory Leraris and Kevin Orsini, who together secured a complete victory for American Express in the Second Circuit and US Supreme Court to end a longstanding dispute first brought by the DOJ then followed by several state attorneys alleging the client's card agreement 'non-discrimination' provisions violated the Sherman Act. Clients also recommend Lauren Roberta Kennedy and Karin DeMasi, who are 'both extremely responsive and give great legal counsel'. Katherine Forrest joined the team from her position with the government, and Vanessa Lavely was recently promoted to partner.
