Mayer Brown’s practice is led by Mark Ryan, who was the first-ever director of litigation at the DOJ’s Antitrust Division. The team has an excellent record of securing summary judgments and appellate victories at US federal and state level. Andrew Marovitz and Britt Miller, who are located in Chicago, are defending Lear Corporation against direct, indirect and public entity purchaser putative class actions connected with alleged price-fixing and bid-rigging by manufacturers of automotive wire harnesses and related components. Elsewhere, litigated merger challenges are another pillar of the practice; William Stallings, Ryan and others acted for CNH Industrial as the initial complainant in the DOJ’s lawsuit against Deere & Company’s proposed acquisition of Precision Planting from Monsanto. Other notable practitioners include Carmine Zarlenga and Adam Hudes. Named lawyers are based in Washington DC, except where otherwise noted.
