Chicago-based Linda Coberly’s expertise in securities fraud class actions and professional liability defense, combined with Steffen Johnson’s antitrust, constitutional and IP practice, is what distinguishes Winston & Strawn LLP’s ‘diligent and savvy’ group. Coberly represented the petitioner in Arias v Lynch and secured a favorable judgment at the Seventh Circuit, obtaining the court’s clarification on the interpretation of the immigration law term ‘crime involving moral turpitude’. Johnson is acting for Cox Communications in a case concerning 21 patents for VoIP technology. Elizabeth Papez argued for the respondent in United States, ex rel Anthony Oliver v Philip Morris USA; the DC Circuit FCA appeal arose from a whistleblower’s accusation of knowing and fraudulent over-billing of sales to the US military. Clients also included Apotex, Morgan Stanley and Panasonic. Geoffrey Eaton is recommended.
