United States: Antitrust

Civil litigation/class actions: defense

Within: Civil litigation/class actions: defense

The civil litigation team at Winston & Strawn LLP is jointly led by Jeffrey Kessler and Eva Cole and was recently bolstered by the arrival in Washington DC of Neely Beth Agin and Eric Meiring from Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP and the DOJ, respectively. The firm's strength in the sports sector can be seen in Kessler's victory on behalf of a class of NCAA athletes in its challenge against the NCAA's restraints on compensation. In another highlight, Chicago-based Dan Webb and New York-based Aldo Badini defeated Keurig's motion to dismiss their client Treehouse Foods' complaint of anti-competitive practices. Other key names in the Chicago office include James Herbison and David Dahlquist, while Robert Pringle sits in San Francisco. Recent team developments also include the promotion to partner of Ian Papendick in San Francisco, sports litigation expert Jonathan Amoona in New York and Diana Hughes Leiden in Los Angeles.

Winston & Strawn LLP is noted for the 'effectiveness' of its team 'in dealing with all aspects of exceptionally complex matters'. The group's Washington DC office was greatly boosted in 2018 by the arrival of a team from Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP, including Abbe Lowell, Michael Loesch and Christopher Man, as well as Eric Meiring, who joined the group from the DOJ's Criminal Section. Lowell is noted for handling top-drawer individual representations; recently he has advised Jared Kushner on the congressional and special counsel inquiries into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 'Bright and sophisticated in her approach', New York-based Suzanne Jaffe Bloom defended AIG in an FCA case before the Second Circuit, successfully dismissing a qui tam relator's complaint with prejudice. On account of his 'honesty, integrity and perseverance', Thomas Buchanan is described by one client as 'an Abraham Lincoln of the modern era'; he represented Transport Logistics International in a DOJ FCPA investigation into a kickback scheme involving Russian officials, leading to a deferred prosecution agreement and a drastically reduced fine. Chicago's Dan Webb is representing Ukrainian businessman Dmitry Firtash in an FCPA case pending in the Northern District of Illinois. Other key practitioners include San Francisco's Robb Adkins and New York's Seth Farber, who jointly chair the group alongside Lowell. 'Top-of-the-market' Tom Melsheimer in Dallas and 'accessible' Steven Grimes (who splits his time between Chicago and Hong Kong) are also recommended.
