United States: Dispute resolution

General commercial disputes

Within: General commercial disputes

White & Case LLP is recommended for its ‘outstanding expertise, responsiveness and devotion to its clients’ interests’. Its global litigation capabilities are a major draw for large companies with multinational operations, particularly in the technology sector. Bryan Merryman and Rachel Feldman in Los Angeles represented Time Warner Cable, Saveology.com and Elephant Group as defendants in a putative class action alleging violations of the California Invasion of Privacy Act that sought to recover over $1.85bn on behalf of the putative class. In New York, global chair of commercial litigation Glenn Kurtz and Douglas Baumstein are ‘top-notch partners’ and Washington DC-based international disputes specialist Claire DeLelle is ‘very calm and measured’. The firm bolstered its cybersecurity and national security practice with the hire of Steven Chabinsky in Washington DC from cybersecurity technology company CrowdStrike.

Douglas Baumstein and Kim Haviv obtained the dismissal of all claims against German technology company Aixtron in a class action that alleged misrepresentations and material omissions in press releases and SEC filings. Owen Pell, Bryan Merryman in Los Angeles and Washington DC-based Christopher Curran acted for Toshiba Corporation in a case regarding American depository receipts in which plaintiffs asserted that a foreign issuer is subject to the US Exchange Act even if it has not sponsored an ADR program in the US.
