United States: Antitrust
Mayer Brown’s strong antitrust practice is active in investigations into LIBOR as well as the autoparts and capacitors industries. The group, which is spread across the firm’s offices in Washington DC, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Palo Alto, also defends a variety of clients in cartel-related litigation. The department was boosted by the return of ‘fabulous lawyer’ Mark Ryan, who rejoined the firm’s Washington DC office as global chair of the antitrust and competition practice, following a tenure as director of litigation at the DOJ’s Antitrust Division. William Stallings also joined the team after holding several key positions in the Antitrust Division. In a recent highlight, Chicago-based Andrew Marovitz and Thomas Panoff acted as co-counsel to steel manufacturer ArcelorMittal. Other key clients include Nestlé, Cargill and HSBC. Britt Miller in Chicago, Robert Bloch and Adam Hudes are noted. All lawyers work in Washington DC except where stated otherwise.

Mayer Brown is noted for its ‘excellent value for money’ as well as for the ‘knowledge and understanding’ of its lawyers. A cross-office team of New York and Paris attorneys, including Richard Steuer, is representing Société Générale in the civil litigation that followed the LIBOR manipulation scandal, which involved several international banks. In Washington DC, Carmine Zarlenga and Adam Hudes are leading advice to Nestlé USA in a sizeable MDL consisting of over 90 federal lawsuits alleging that the multinational food company conspired with Mars, Hershey and Cadbury to fix the price of chocolate products sold in the US. Chicago-based Britt Miller, who is ‘very efficient and has excellent client interaction skills’, and Palo Alto-based Edward Johnson, who recently acted for Google, are additional key contacts.
