Ben Holt has over 15 years’ experience litigating high stakes antitrust and competition disputes. He helps his clients navigate these increasingly complex matters and achieve the best result possible, whether winning the case or finding a successful business resolution.

Ben regularly defends clients in class actions, often in parallel with governmental investigations and has significant experience coordinating litigation and investigations across borders. He has also handled numerous stand-alone antitrust lawsuits and investigations covering a range of competition issues from mergers to price-fixing, and everything in between.

He has litigated antitrust cases on both sides of the “v” and brings this experience to his counseling practice. Ben regularly advises clients on antitrust and competition issues arising from business deals and disputes and provides counseling on compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. He has experience in a wide range of industries, but has focused most of his work on the health care, financial services, and automotive sectors.

Ben has published a variety of articles on antitrust and antitrust litigation topics and regularly presents to clients and others on developments in the field and relevant antitrust topics such as antitrust compliance for trade associations and strategies to defend antitrust class actions. He is the co-editor of Global Competition Review’s Private Litigation Guide and the co-author of Antitrust Compliance, published by Bloomberg BNA as part of the Corporate Practice series. Ben also serves as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center, teaching a seminar on antitrust practice and writing.
