Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP is praised for its ‘excellent expertise in complex antitrust matters’. The practice is very active in the media industry; New York-based Eric Hochstadt and Steven Reiss represented a group of local television stations as plaintiffs in a putative class action alleging violations of the Sherman Act relating to the Society of European Stage Authors and Composers’ licensing practices for access to its repertory of musical performances. On the defense side, Washington DC-based Carrie Mahan Anderson (who was also part of the team advising the local television stations) successfully obtained the dismissal, on behalf of all defendants, including client Michael Foods, of an indirect purchaser class action in the Re Processed Egg Products Antitrust Litigation. UnitedHealthCare, CBS and Hilton Worldwide are also clients.
