Dechert LLP has a prominent standing in contentious merger matters. In a recent example, Paul Denis, deputy chair of the firm’s global litigation practice, and Mike Cowie led advice to General Electric in contesting the DOJ’s challenge to its proposed $3.3bn sale of GE Appliances to Sweden’s Electrolux; the transaction was ultimately aborted. On the class actions side, Philadelphia-based Christine Levin successfully obtained, for key client R.W. Sauder, the dismissal of a motion to certify a class by a putative class of indirect purchasers alleging that producers of eggs and egg products conspired to reduce supply. Other clients include American Airlines and Dow. Paul Friedman, who like Denis and Cowie is located in Washington DC, and New York-based Michael Weiner are also recommended. Steven Bizar, an experienced antitrust and trade regulation litigator, joined from Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney in February 2016.
