Squire Patton Boggs' team serves as 'true business partners in what is a highly technical area', delivering 'personal and constructive advice' on cartel investigations and related litigation; its work has spanned areas such as optical disc drives, refrigeration compressors, LCD screens and graphite electrodes. Praised for its 'in-depth knowledge and experience', the group 'can react to urgent matters'. Team head and managing partner Brian Hartnett ('a hugely experienced litigator'), Oliver Geiss and Will Sparks represented Chilean airline Latam in a successful appeal of the EC's finding of a global cartel in the air freight sector. Also notable is the firm's excellent credentials in state aid cases, as was illustrated when Hartnett and Geiss successfully represented Frucona Koƥice in a landmark appeal at the European Court of Justice.
