Latham & Watkins LLP provides 'thoughtful and sound case strategy' and global co-head Christopher Yates 'has a sense for clients' needs' and stands out through his 'outstanding experience not only in antitrust, but litigation as a whole'. Daniel Wall and Sadik Huseny are currently collaborating with him to advise Apple on putative class action suits challenging the legality of Apple's restrictions on third-party applications via its App Store. The US Soccer Federation appointed a team including New York's Lawrence Buterman and Washington DC's Gregory Garre to defend it in a claim brought by the NASL alleging that US Soccer and other professional leagues conspired to exclude NASL from the top divisions to monopolize the market. Also notable in Washington DC are Jennifer Giordano and Margaret Zwisler, while Al Pfeiffer sits in the San Francisco office. They recently acted for high-profile clients in the healthcare, telecoms and media sectors, such as Highmark and Cox Communications. Amanda Reeves co-heads the department in Washington, D.C., and was part of the team which defended Genentech in a suit filed by Russian biotechnology company Biocad alleging the client and other drug manufacturers engaged in predatory pricing and unlawful tying arrangements to prevent Biocad from competing in the US market.
