Mayer Brown draws on a vast international network, and is well known for being at the forefront of litigation in the financial services sector, especially securities disputes, from its New York office. Its California practice is expanding its reach in the tech space: in a recent highlight, Edward Johnson represented Google in multiple major antitrust, privacy and consumer class actions claiming billions in damages. Another standout matter saw Michael Olsen represent 3M in a major environmental tort brought by the State of Minnesota seeking $5bn in damages for chemicals allegedly released in the East Metro area of Minneapolis. John Conlon in New York and Reginald Goeke in DC are heads of the commercial litigation team. Among core clients in the financial sector, Bank of New York Mellon is particularly noteworthy. Matthew Ingber recently reached a groundbreaking $8.5bn settlement for the bank, bringing years of RMBS litigation to a close. A major team development was the arrival of Nicole Saharsky to the DC office from Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in November 2018. She now acts as co-head of the Supreme Court and appellate practice.
