United States: Antitrust

Civil litigation/class actions

Within: Civil litigation/class actions

Mayer Brown’s practice is led by global head Mark Ryan, who rejoined the firm in 2015, having previously served at the DOJ’s Antitrust Division, where he was its first-ever director of litigation. The group also benefits from the expertise of other seasoned ex-DOJ practitioners, including William Stallings, Robert Bloch and Richard Favretto. The firm’s international footprint, combined with deep trial and appellate experience at federal and state level in the US, makes the firm a strong choice for a broad base of clients, which include Nestlé USA, Société Générale and Google. Andrew Marovitz and Britt Miller, who are both Chicago based, are representing HSBC in a class action where it is alleged that there was a conspiracy among financial institutions to limit competition in the credit default swaps market. The pair are also defending Temple Inland in consolidated class action litigation concerning an alleged conspiracy to restrict capacity and fix the prices of corrugated products. Named lawyers are based in Washington DC except where otherwise noted.

  • First VAT EU case law on the cost-sharing VAT exemption

    The question of the scope of the cost-sharing VAT exemption, also referred to in the Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 as amended ("EU VAT Directive") as “Independent Groups of Persons” or “IGPs”, is currently being debated at the Court of Justice of the EU (“CJEU”) in several cases.

  • An Introduction to Corporate Guarantee

    In the UAE, the risk management activities inherent in running a corporate or investment banking business remain of crucial importance, not least because of the strong local characteristic of “name lending”, by which is meant lending or providing other banking facilities to family or other private businesses, primarily on the strength of the “name” or “names” of the proprietors standing behind the business, rather than on the strength of the asset quality and underlying credit of the particular business. Of course, in practice, there is commercial overlap between the proprietors and the companies which they own, but the credit analyses can break down where poor banking practices and procedures result in poorly constructed legal documentation and gaps in guarantee and security support documents.
